ssessment conducted for the event. The total economic activity generated by the 100th Grey Cup was more than $133.1 million thro Antworten

Toronto - During a special presentation to the City of Torontos Economic Development Committee on Wednesday, Toronto Argonauts and 100th Grey Cup Festival Executive Chairman & CEO, Chris Rudge, officially unveiled the results of the Economic Impact Assessment conducted for the event. The total economic activity generated by the 100th Grey Cup was more than $133.1 million throughout the province, with $94.7 million occurring in Toronto. These expenditures supported $38.4 million in wages and salaries throughout the province, and supported 795 jobs, of which 596 - including $26.6 million in wages and salaries - occurred in Toronto. The net economic activity (GDP) generated by the event was $70.2 million in the Province of Ontario, of which $48.9 million occurred in Toronto. The assessment was prepared by the Canadian Sport Tourism Alliance using the STEAM PRO economic impact assessment model which is widely considered to be the gold standard for evaluating the economic impact of a particular event in a region or area. "The City of Toronto scored an economic touchdown with the 100th Grey Cup Festival," said Mayor Rob Ford. "This tremendously successful event brought in nearly $95 million in economic benefits, resulted in hundreds of jobs for our residents, and was enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people." Considerable tax revenues were also generated by the event, totalling nearly $25.3 million. The event supported federal government tax revenues of nearly $11.6 million; with an additional $9.3 million in taxes accruing to the province of Ontario, and more than $4.3 million to municipalities in the province, of which $3.4 million was in Toronto. The event attracted more than 199,400 spectators, including 86,400 out of town spectators to Toronto. Each out of town spectator spent an average of $354.87 in the community over the course of their trip. The average day-trip visitor spent $122.60 and the average overnight visitor spent $646.98. "The Grey Cup Festival was a huge win for our city, both on and off of the field," said Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Citys Economic Development Committee. "It is most gratifying that an event of such national importance also brought with it economic, cultural and employment benefits for our city and its people." Commented Toronto Argonauts and 100th Grey Cup Festival Executive Chairman & CEO, Chris Rudge,"We are very pleased with the results produced by this assessment. The Festival was an important celebration of sport and culture for our city, province and country, and this evaluation demonstrates the positive, far-reaching financial impact it had on all of us. The people of Toronto opened their arms to the nation and were rewarded with a tremendous infusion of economic spending that also resulted in job creation and millions of dollars in municipal and provincial tax revenue. We look forward to hosting the Grey Cup festival and game again soon." The economic impact results were derived from surveys taken during the 100th Grey Cup Festival. A total of 1,148 visitor parties who were approached responded to the survey, with 444 indicating they were from Toronto, while 704 were visitors. The study was commissioned by Heritage Canada and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. Cheap Yeezys For Sale .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Martha Karolyi leaned forward, her hands clutching the railing in front of her seat. Knuckles white. Head tilted. Body tense.It didnt matter that the U.S. womens Olympic gymnastics team had already sewn up the team gold by the time three-time world champion Simone Biles saluted the floor exercise judges during the final event on Tuesday night.Winning isnt enough for Karolyi. Never has been. For 90 seconds the longtime national team coordinator leaned one way and then another, following Biles every move. Only after Biles score was posted -- one that served as an exclamation point on two hours of nearly flawless gymnastics -- did the architect of a dynasty relax.Then, something else happened. Something she never saw coming. She started crying. And not just a little.I pride normally being very tough, Karolyi said. I was `Oh, whats happening to me? What is this?Its goodbye.The 73-year-old is stepping away from the program she has spent the last 15 years turning into one of the most dominant forces at the Olympics. Her athletes -- all of whom shes nurtured from prodigies to champions -- repaid her hard work with a fitting tribute of precision and tenacity.Twenty eight times in two days they stepped up to compete. And 28 times they hit. No falls. No major wobbles. Nothing but brilliance.The U.S. posted a score of 184.897, more than eight points clear of silver medalist Russia and nearly nine more than bronze medalist China while winning its second straight Olympic title and third overall, a margin greater than the one that propelled the Fierce Five to victory in London four years ago.So much for the pressure of being the heavy favorite. The only real mystery surrounded what nickname the team would settle on before Biles stumbled upon it during a group text.The group -- Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez -- dubbed themselves The Final Five as a nod to Karolyi.Its perfect, Biles said. Its Marthas last year. We wanted it to be meaningful.Biles admitted there were nerves before Sundays preliminaries, though it hardly looked like it while the Americans posted the highest score by more than nine points. The only moment of tension on Tuesday came early. When Hernandez was introduced to the crowd, Raisman nudged her and told her to wave, which the 16-year-old did with a ttoothy smile.ddddddddddddarely five minutes later, the youngest member of Team USA was all business. Her double-twisting Yurchenko vault -- basically a roundoff onto the block followed by a pair of twists -- put the machine in motion. Raisman, who won three medals in London four years ago and seemed to be on the outside looking in as recently as this spring, followed with perhaps the finest vault of her long career. When Biles drilled her Amanar and put up a 15.933 -- tied for highest of the night -- the U.S. was already on top of the leaderboard and everyone else was playing for second.Its a fate the rest of the field seemed to accept. Russian star Aliya Mustafina admitted before the competition the Americans were unbeatable. Chinas Shang Chunsong said her team aimed for the silver medal, a position the Chinese seemed to have in hand until stumbling on the final rotation.The top spot was never in doubt. The U.S. hasnt lost a major international competition since 2010 and there appears to be no end in sight to their run even though Karolyi and her husband Bela are selling the training facility on their Texas ranch to USA Gymnastics later this month.Karolyi joked shes going to have to be a normal person in retirement and plans to poke her head in occasionally to see if they are going in the right direction.At the moment, that direction is up. Way up thanks in part to the semi-centralized system Karolyi installed. Team members and coaches visit the ranch regularly, where they receive specialized instructions. No detail is overlooked. The competition on Tuesday forced the U.S. to wait sometimes 20-30 minutes between sets. No problem. They do that at the ranch all the time.Martha does that to us, Douglas said. Its start. Stop. Start. Stop.The retirement party will have to wait. Theres more gold to be won. All five Americans will compete later in the games, starting with Biles and Raisman in the all-around on Thursday. Theyll get Wednesday morning off, then its back to work. The job is not done.It never is.Dont take anything granted, Karolyi said. We want to do the very best all the time.A mantra that will live on long after Karolyi takes off her USA Gymnastics sweatsuit for the last time. ' ' '
