In a telephone conversation with Rich Kenah, partner of Mark Wetmore at Global Athletics & Marketing, the meet managers for the 2010 adidas Grand Prix, lots of progress was noted. Mr. Kenah reminded us of the excitement of Usain Bolt running in the U.S., the strong ticket sales for the adidas Grand Prix, where nearly half of all tickets have been sold for the meet (at this time last year, they were just beginning sales). Option-it, the option sports ticket agency, has surpassed its’ sales goals for the meeting already!
