The verdict has arrived. The European Triathlon Championship held in the city last month involved an investment of 663.000 euros, of which two out of three were public money.
This was highlighted yesterday during the meeting of the organizing committee of the European test that was carried out in provincial dependencies. According to the leader of the Galician Triathlon Federation, the municipal public coffers disbursed 160.000 euros for the event, the provincial 108.000 and the regional 90.000. To this figure must be added the costs of 104.000 euros of security that the championship required.
However, Paco Villanueva, the president of the federation, indicated that the red numbers only reached 13.000 euros. But the organizers will try to reduce that deficit to zero, or leave it around 3.000 euros.
