Our Los Angeles 2012 Bid Committee is deeply disappointed that our bid for the 2012 Olympic Games did not advance to the final round of the domestic competition.

Bruce Dworshak, a man of uncommon gentility and humility who was a leading expert in organizing and managing services for the press at the Olympic Games and other large-scale sporting events, died Tuesday. He was 48. Dworshak had appeared hale at the Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games, where he served as director of press operations. Only a few people knew he had been battling illness for months; he died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The cause of death was not announced.

Cash-flow problems and poor ticket sales are threatening the viability of the Powerade Indoor Track and Field Championships, leading organizers to consider canceling the Feb. 11 meet at Staples Center if they can't fortify its financial underpinnings. The Los Angeles Track and Field Organizing Committee, which is promoting and producing the meet, secured a three-year sponsorship from Coca-Cola--parent company of the Powerade brand--as well as recent commitments from Time Warner and Wittnauer.
