After College Park show, county to honor Olympian


September 08, 2004|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Olympic champion Michael Phelps and his "Disney's Swim With the Stars" tour will perform at the University of Maryland's Campus Recreation Center Natatorium in College Park on Friday night.

The show, featuring Phelps and two of his gold medal-winning teammates, Ian Crocker and Lenny Krayzelburg, will start at 7 p.m. General admission tickets, priced at $30 each, will go on sale at 5 p.m. and doors will open an hour later.

There will be no advance ticket sales. Because the natatorium seats only about 1,000, there will be a limit of four tickets per person.

The tour started last week at Disney World in Orlando, Fla., and in Atlanta. The swimmers will be on Long Island, N.Y., tonight. After Baltimore, they are scheduled to go to Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Salt Lake City, Seattle and San Francisco before finishing at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.

Baltimore County will honor Phelps on Saturday with festivities beginning at 9 a.m. at the swimmer's alma mater, Towson High School, followed by a parade down York Road.
