SYDNEY, Australia (Sept. 7)—Goodyear said Sept. 6 that its airship Spirit of the South Pacific will broadcast footage of the 2000 Summer Olympic Games this month from Sydney. Because International Olympic Committee restrictions prohibit corporate branding at the Games, Goodyear´s logo will be replaced with the Australian greeting "G´day" on the blimp´s left side and "GOOD LUCK" on the right side. Aerial pictures taken from the blimp will be available for viewing at the official Web site of the Games, www.olympics.com, under the special section "Blimp Cam."
