The 2005 Goodwill Games will originate from Calgary, Alberta.

Goodwill Games president Michael Plant said in the latest issue of
Goodwill Games Record that the inclusion of ice hockey in the 2005 games
was 'critical in their decision to partner with us, as it is a major part of
their sports culture.'

Similarly, he added, 2001 site Brisbane, Australia, will include surf
lifesaving in its coverage, due on Turner Network Television Aug. 29 through
Sept. 9.

Turner said this year's event will be supported by advertising in print,
radio and online, as well as by more than 14,000 promotion spots on all Turner
Broadcasting System Inc. cable networks, including CNN Airport Network, starting
June 12.
