Q: It is often said that hosting international sporting never such as Olympic Games is good for local communities because that can boost the local economy by investment and attracting tourist all over the world. However, I think holding these kinds of events is harmful for local communities.
First reason is that preparation for these international competition requires local people huge cost. In order to hold sporting events like Olympics, it is needed not only sport facilities such as stadiums and gymnasiums but also transportation systems like subway lines. These construction costs are too big for local communities to pay even though the central government supports economically.
Second reason is that maintenance cost for above facilities will be economic burden on locals. For example, Nagano city have been suffering huge debts for maintenance after Nagano Olympic Games.
Third reason is that beneficial effect of international sporting event is too small to pay off all costs mentioned above. During the international sports competition, it can attract a lot of people around the globe but its effect is temporally. After the events the number of tourist will dwindle.

For the three reasons mentioned above, I think we can say with confidence that hosting international events is not beneficial to local communities. Its demerits outweigh its merits. The local government should consider its effect more vigilantly. does this sound natural?
