Benefits of hosting sport events… There are different points of view on this matter. Some people say it is a kind of window-dressing whereas others believe that such events actually make sense.
As far as I am concerned, there are more disadvantages of these events than theirs advantages. To start with, international events like the Olympic Games require enormous amount of money. Those expenses can lead a town or even a country into bankruptcy.
Moreover, there is a great risk of failure, for example, if the town that hosts an event, has its own problems like the lack of places of residence both for its citizens and tourists. In addition, it is well seen how the hosting cities begin to change just visually but not practically before every important event.
In contrast, there is an opinion that there is nothing to worry about while hosting any sport event as international sport events show how important physical activity can be. Then, such people also admit that hosting an event can increase significance of the town and help with tourism.
In fact, I cannot agree with them because all this solemnity is just a mask to cover many disadvantages the city has. The poor, for example, even then will not be able to visit an event. Actually, a great deal of money spent on hosting an event can be donated to anything the city and the region need the most.
In conclusion, I would like to state that it is a bad idea to host international sport events since huge responsibility brings huge risks as well.
