Athlete Direct Launches Official Nancy Kerrigan Web Site.

LOS ANGELES--(BW SportsWire)--Nov. 1, 1999--

Athlete Direct announced the launch of the official Web site of Olympic figure skating great Nancy Kerrigan, located at www.athletedirect.com.

Kerrigan will kick off her site with an online chat with her fans on Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on Yahoo! (http://chat.yahoo.com).

"I am proud to be associated with Athlete Direct because it is the No. 1 choice in online sports entertainment. This relationship will allow me to expand my interaction with skating fans worldwide," said Kerrigan.

The Nancy Kerrigan site on AthleteDirect.com will give fans the unique opportunity to interact with perhaps the most prominent figure skater of the 1990s and track information regarding her busy career. Kerrigan's site will include exclusive personal journals that give fans insight into the life and career of this skating legend.

Kerrigan will also answer questions from fans relating to her life both in and out of figure skating. In addition, Kerrigan's fans will have an opportunity to post messages or chat with other fans, track upcoming appearances and shop in her personal online store.

Kerrigan is busy on many fronts. She recently released her first musical recording, with her single "Shining Through" appearing on the album "Reflections off the Ice." She has just completed a run as Sandy in the production of "Grease on Ice" and is currently headlining a production of "Halloween on Ice" touring the United States through October.

Kerrigan will also be featured in TNN's broadcast of "Skating Goes Country" this December. Plus, Kerrigan has taped a role in the upcoming TV movie "Ice Angel," which will be broadcast on the Fox Family Channel in January.

Kerrigan joins an extensive roster of great female athletes, including Mia Hamm, Tiffeny Milbrett, Sheryl Swoopes, Jana Novotna, Kerri Strug and Shannon MacMillan, among others, who have made Athlete Direct their official online homes, by placing their official Web sites at www.athletedirect.com.
