(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah's former Olympic venues didn't lose as much money as expected in their fiorst full year of operation after the Winter Games.

But former SLOC financial chief Fraser Bullock says it is too early to get overly excited about the results.
The Utah Athletic Foundation budget for the fiscal year ending April 30 was projected to run a four-point-five (M)million dollar deficit. But the shortfall turned out to be only four-point-one-five million.
