Miami can claim three major world
championship sports events. Due to it's location in the northern hemisphere, but with very mild winters
and an excellent tourism base, the combination attracts sportspeople from all over.
The Crandon Park Tennis Center is home to the Sony Eriksson Open, Doral Golf Resort where the World Golf
Championship is held each March. Homestead Speedway, a NASCAR track, hosts the Ford Championship Weekend.
The Miami Marathon is becoming world famous for its fast and dramatically inspiring route.
There are any numbers of other championships such as power boat races, sailing regattas, hot air balloon
rallies as well as more zany events like the annual male and female model beach volleyball tournament, as well as the
amazing Polo World Cup both played on Miami Beach.
