Throughout the years, different countries have organized the events for the universal game. From hosting, there are three considerable cons to hosting the Olympics in your country. The consequence of these controversies damages the country economically. The development of the Olympics have advanced traumatically since first the modern day game held in 1896. A copious amount of wealth have been invested into previous games.
I decided to analyse the risk assessment for the Olympic Game of London 2012. I choose the Olympic games because, in my opinion, they are one of the major events where everything has to be managed and calculated. In particular London’s Olympic game was an example of a worldwide successful event. I analyse it in relation to the risk assessment of the event “it is time for hour future”. First of all it is important to consider a fundamental difference between these two events: the Olympic games are a mega event that affect whole economies and tend to be global in scope with regard to their governance, participations and tourist arrivals; the event I created is a major event that, although having a media coverage and economic benefits, attract significantly fewer numbers.
$3.63B USD) (Auditor-General, 2002). With majority of the cost coming from built facilities. With an estimated loss of $2.2B (Madden, 2012) from the 2000 Olympic Games Sydney 's land used for the games is actually doing quite well with the all the grounds being converted into residential, commercial, and sporting suburb. Along with a master plan 2030, where Sydney hoped to have 50,000 workers in the area as well as being able to hold 25,000 daily visitors (Olympics, 2012). “Sydney projected a $6.3 billion impact creating over 100,000 new employment opportunities” (Burgo,p.14,
Benefits for Countries Hosting Olympic Games The Olympic Games are one of the most world renown mega-events that are held every two years. During the time that the games are held, culture from nation is being introduced into the host country’s environment and allows for people from all over the globe to become more cultured on other civilizations. Every benefit they receive from investing into the olympics is returned as a profit because of the long lasting effects of the Olympics, allowing each one of their benefits to earn more profits for the country. An outstanding example of cultural unity is the Korean team during the Winter Olympic Games, which was not separated into North and South. Host countries gain cultural integration and unity, economic benefits, and a reshaped or refined image, all of which are benefits that host
One could say it’s from the public while others says it’s from sponsors. According to “The Guardian” both of these statements are correct. In the 2012 London Games the money came from the central government (which involves taxes paid by the population and organizations), sponsorships from around the world, national lottery, the International Olympic Community, and TV broadcast rights. Hence it is understandable that the population is questioning, whether the taxes paid are used in an economic matter, because if it is not used economically, then clearly it would be a waste of
The persuasive article educates the American people when Brooks uses examples of logos, rhetorical question, and tone to explain how our economy is thriving similarly to our Olympic athletes who are bringing home the gold. Brooks begins his persuasive essay comparing Olympic success to the United States economy using the rhetorical device logos to justify his main claim that America’s economy is as strong as our Olympians training facilities. He uses persuasion skills like logos to gain trust from the audience “But America’s success is like our Olympic success, writ large,” (Brooks 8). Brooks adds onto that thought “In fact, American succeeds in global trade about as well as the Olympics,” (Brooks 14). Because of his use of logos he uses, his claim becomes more reasonable to the audience making for a
The Ancient Olympic Games celebrated culture and politics as much as athleticism. Examining the Ancient Games through these lenses reveals a contradiction between fostering national Greek unity and the rivalries between Greece’s many city-states. Every four years, tens of thousands of Greeks from hundreds of different city-states came together to compete against each other in sports but also to conduct politics and important business. On the one hand, the Games were grounded in religion and myth, something common to all Greeks across the empire. However, the focus on individual athletes and their victories necessarily served to divide the city-states as they fought for individual honors and prizes.
The sports market is so saturated today that if you want the very best you 'll have to pay the most. “In 1920, the U.S. Census Bureau first began tracking spending on spectator sports, estimating it at $257 million ($2.9 billion in current dollars). The consulting firm of W.R. Hambrecht reported that in 2010 that figure had increased to $22.4 billion, more than Americans spent on movies or theater”(Reiss 188-189). With some athletes like Shaquille O´Neal earning $41 million off of their first rookie contract which is more than most people make in their lifetime (Cooksey 1170). Even with golf players such as Tiger Woods, who earned a total of $790,594, or $940,420 including international tournaments (¨Tiger Woods¨ 269).
According to the data in 2013, five top countries that have the largest hydropower capacity, which are China, Brazil, United States, Canada, and Russia, occupied over half of hydropower global capacity (Ren21). China takes 26%, Brazil takes 8.6%, United States takes 7.8%, Canada takes 7.6%, Russia 4.7%, and ‘rest of country’ takes 45.4% of the global hydropower capacity. As annual global capacity reaches 1000GW, China reaches 260GW by itself, while Brazil generates 86GW. Hydropower electricity generated from China is greater than 3times of Brazil’s. To compare hydropower electricity generated in 2012 to 2013, all top 5 counties showed the acceleration (Ren21).
One person’s failure may mean success to another. For many years, the environment we grow in, people tend to view progress in ways like having much wealth and being famous. The myth about success has been so rampant even in our advertisements and other marketing techniques as compared to the reality (Hines, pg7). Many people, however, tend to believe in the situation. Although owning a big house, becoming a president of United States like Barrack Obama among others can be a success for such individuals, this does not provide the real definition of success.
