Showing Posts in "The Arnold Sports Festival"
By Steve Wartenberg | There’s a new event at the world’s largest multi-sport fitness weekend and each and every one of the 185,000 people who attended the Arnold Sports Festival participated – whether they wanted to or not.
This new event is called Navigating the Arnold and it requires a wide range of skills and a love of adventure. For example, you need to know how to make your way through a throng of thousands of people, with your head on a swivel to catch a glimpse of the famous bodybuilders, wrestlers, powerlifters and gymnasts walking by. Quickness is a necessity, as you often need to duck and dart through small openings before the hole closes up – and shoot photos on your smart phone as you make your way from one venue to the next of the famous people you see.

March represents a month when the entire Columbus sports community is in “play” and more, with several major events taking place. The strength of Columbus as a sports destination is the variety and depth of our sports, from professional, collegiate sports from Div. I to Div. III, to participation sports like the Arnold Sports Festival, the largest multi-sport event in the world.
In the Columbus Dispatch today, there is a great “Money Month” article by Marla Matzer Rose on the economic impact of March’s amateur sporting events for the city which is an estimated $63M for the 13 events (listed below) and over 450K attendees. Rose also did an interview with WBNS 10TV this morning on her article (in Video Extras: Sports Tourism).
