No Site Yet for Grand Prix Meet

May 18, 1998

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ USA Track & Field executive director Craig Masback said Monday that the organization was committed to being the host for an IAAF Grand Prix meet July 25 in the United States.

Masback, however, did not say where the meet would be held.

The meet originally was scheduled for Durham, N.C. But the national governing body and the meet organizers disagreed on financial arrangements and Durham pulled out.

Masback said USATF had arranged network television for the meet and a prize money format had been worked out between athletes and agents. He also said USATF had secured sponsor funding to cover the cost of athlete participation and promotion of the meet.
