Gay Games register over 9k participants

With the final registration day for the Gay Games a week past, Cologne is reporting just over 9,100 registered participants. There are still "some unpaid registrations in the system," so that number will go up a little, Cologne's head of media, Ingo Schneider, said.

It's considerably under the 12,000 number the Gay Games were putting out there a year ago; But as the reality of the lingering worldwide recession hit, they have lowered their expectations in recent months. Their 9,100 registrations is about double what Copenhagen got for the Outgames last summer.
