|LA PAZ cheap nike air max 2017 outlet , Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Bolivian President Evo Morales Monday proposed hosting the Dakar Rally again in 2016, across more of the country.
"My great wish is to host (the rally) over four or five days in three or four departments," Morales told reporters at a press conference before the start of Day 8 in this year's race, which took competitors from Bolivia's Uyini salt flats to the town of Iquique, in neighboring Chile.
Morales, who was at the site to see off the racers, said both of the editions Bolivia has hosted so far, including last year's cheap nike air max 2018 outlet , have satisfied the organizers, the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), but the decision lies with the competitors.
"There's not much to say, (the organizers) are on board, but the main defenders of holding the Dakar in Bolivia are the racers," said Morales, who believes the race helps generate much-needed revenue for the small South American nation.
Juan Ramon Quintana, the minister of the presidency cheap nike air max outlet , said the race was having a notable impact on the economy, especially the tourism industry.
"The Dakar is transforming the economy, the living conditions in the southern region, especially in Uyuni," where the number of Japanese visitors has increased by 500 percent in the last year, said Quintana, without providing any figures.
"The number of foreigners in the region has grown strongly and significantly, and it's not a coincidence that in less than a year cheap air max 2017 outlet , we have seen exponential growth in tourism infrastructure," he added.
The rally's motorcycle and quad racers traversed part of the 10,000-square-kilometer salt flats for the first time ever this year, during the rugged off-road race's trajectory through Bolivia.
TORONTO, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Canada has already surpassed its gold medal total from the 2011 Pan American Games, and it's only day five.
Canada added eight more gold medals Wednesday at Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games, bringing its tally to 33 with a combined 83 medals to remain atop the standings, while the United States took home 86 medals including 28 gold.
Already a three-time medalist at these Games cheap air max 2018 outlet , Canadian gymnast Ellie Black took home two more gold medals, in the women's floor and balance-beam event, to give her five medals (three gold, one silver, one bronze) in five events.
"This was more than I expected, this has been incredible. The support here has been amazing, I'm was so proud of our team coming in silver, and individually in my finals I was not expecting half of this cheap air max outlet ," Black said following her gold in the women's floor event.
Earlier on Wednesday, Canada earned a medal in four of five races, including three gold, on the final day of rowing competition at the Royal Canadian Henley course in St. Catharines, Ontario. The men's lightweight coxless fours, the men's eight and the women's quadruple sculls all topped the podium.
Lynda Kiejko, of Calgary, won the gold medal in the women's 25-meter pistol event. Kiejko also won gold in the women's 10-meter air pistol on Sunday.
Kierra Smith and Hilary Caldwell led Canada to a pair of one-two finishes in the swimming competition. Smith won gold in the 200-meter women's breaststroke in a Pan Am record time of two minutes 24.38 seconds. Toronto's Martha McCabe finished 0.13 seconds back to take silver.
Caldwell cheap nike air max 2017 online , from White Rock B.C., set a Pan Am record in the 200 backstroke, winning in 2:08.22. Dominique Bouchard of North Bay, Ontario, was second in 2:09.74.
In an unexpected move, four Cuban rowers have defected to the United States during the Pan Am Games, according to the team's coach Juan Carlos Reyes. The coach said Leosmel Ramos, Wilber Turro cheap nike air max 2018 online , Manuel Suarez and Orlando Sotolongo have left the team and traveled south across the border.
There are more than 150 Cuban athletes at the Pan Am Games, competing in a range of sports. Defections have happened at past Canadian competitions. Eight members of the Cuban delegation defected when Canada last hosted the Pan Am Games in 1999.
Also on Wednesday, Toronto was abuzz with the news that U.S. rapper Kanye West would headline the Pan Am Games closing ceremonies. The Grammy Award-winning and world-renowned artist will join Canadian star Serena Ryder and American rapper Pitbull onstage July 26 at the closing ceremonies at Rogers Centre.
"If this doesn't get you excited and you don't think there's going to be a party in Toronto on the 26th of July, then we have nothing left for you," Toronto 2015 CEO Saad Rafi said in announcing the headlining acts Wednesday.
But picking an American rap artist to headline the closing ceremonies in a Canadian city has riled up some people, including more than 1,100 who signed a Change.org petition within hours of the announcement requesting organizers to reconsider their decision.
"It would only be just to ask a proud Torontonian (or even a Canadian for that matter) in the music industry to perform," the petition states cheap nike air max online , listing Drake, Shania Twain and Metric as notable examples.
"Just like many elements of our games, whether they be opening or closing ceremonies, we have made contributions towards various elements and sometimes all contributions come from sponsors," Rafi said.
Ticket prices for the closing ceremonies start at 90 Canadian dollars and are still available at toronto2015.orgtickets, organizers said.
