Here's an Olympic business fact: The Sydney Games licensing was very successful-especially if you consider the host country's population. The licensed merchandise generated the equivalent of $2.50 from every man, woman, and child in Australia. This compares to only about 32 cents per person for previous games.

How do Olympic ski jumpers practice in the summer? The answer to this and other questions are at the Chamber's Gold Medal Seminar next Monday on July 16th. The Seminar is a briefing and tour of the Olympic Winter Sports Park. It includes interaction with Olympic athletes, food, and aerial ski demonstrations.
