2004 Latin American X Games Will Remain in Brazil

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Proudly Hosts the Premier Action Sports Event for a Third Consecutive Year as TV Globo Will Capture It LIVE

ESPNíS LATIN AMERICAN X GAMES MAKES THREE

FROM ESPN ON APRIL 8, 2004 - From May 7th through the 9th, 2004, Leme Beach will once again be filled with action sports athletes from around the globe, including Brazilís very own superstars for the third annual Latin American X Games action sports competition. World champion skateboarder and last yearís gold medallist, Sandro Dias (Sao Paulo), the number one female in-line skater in the world, Fabiola da Silva (Sao Paulo) and skateboard legend and multi-medallist, Bob Burnquist, Sao Paulo, will once again compete at this yearís event.

Latin American X Games III will feature more than 150 leading action sports athletes competing in Bicycle Stunt, Skateboard and Aggressive In-line Skate from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and other Latin American countries. Starting last year, Vert competitions in all sports are open to an International field of participants which last year included athletes from Canada, France, Germany and the USA. For Latin American X Games II (2003), more than 71,200 spectators came out to Leme Beach over the three days to see world-class athletes compete at a world-class venue. Admission to this yearís event will be free.

"We are thrilled to return to Rio for a third consecutive year of Latin American X Games," said Jack Wienert, X Games executive director. "The athletic capabilities of the athletes and the enthusiasm of the spectators paired with our strong partnership with ESPN Brazil, TV Globo and our sponsors have resulted in two overwhelmingly successful events in Rio. With the strength of the totality of this event, we anticipate a fantastic Latin X American Games III. We hope that by hosting the Games here in Rio, the opportunity to experience and participate in action sports continues to grow in this region of the world."

Latin American X Games III is hosted by the Prefeitura of Rio de Janeiro and enjoys high-level sponsorship support from Gold Sponsors Nescau, Siemens Mobile and MasterCard. The event will be televised on TV Globo, ESPN Brazil, ESPN2 in the USA and ESPN International networks around the world.

TV Globo, which helped produce the television coverage of the Latin American X Games the last two years, will once again act as host broadcaster. For the third consecutive year, TV Globo will televise a portion of the Latin American X Games LIVE during its Sports Spectacular program. Last year, Sports Spectacularí s LIVE presentation of the Latin American X Games reached more than 30 million households in Brazil.
