BEIJING Mujer Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Amarillo Rosa Zapatillas , Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group has bought World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) for 650 million U.S. dollars, adding the world's leading triathlon organizer to its already sports-heavy portfolio.

While Wanda is primarily known as a property developer, the deal makes it the world's biggest sports company in terms of operating revenue, with assets including Swiss sports marketing group Infront Sports & Media, which Wanda purchased for 1.05 billion euros (1.2 billion U.S. dollars) earlier this year Hombre Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Deep Azul Blancas Zapatillas , and a 20-percent stake in Spanish soccer team Atletico Madrid.

Florida-based WTC, organizer of the Ironman triathlon series, has a 91-percent share of the market for long-distance triathlons, races which challenge competitors to swim, cycle then run. The management of WTC will stay with the company and will be offered the chance to buy shares.

"The Chinese market is a goldmine waiting to be dug Mujer Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Rosa Blancas Zapatillas ," said Wanda chairman Wang Jianlin at the contract signing ceremony on Thursday.

While China has the world's biggest population, the triathlon is still an underdeveloped sports program, with only around 100 amateurs competing in most events. However, as Chinese are gaining a higher quality of life and many of them are taking up running, triathlons have room for growth Hombre Nike Cortez Classic Nylon Negras Verde Zapatillas , said Wang.

Wanda plans to promote the sport on TV and is aiming to attract 200,000 regular amateur participants in China within 10 years.

The acquisition gives Wanda the rights to organize and broadcast international triathlons, and create synergy with its other holdings including Infront and its travel businesses, according to Wang.

The group is also considering purchasing another sports firm in the second half of the year, he added.

French unions launched a day of strikes and protests Tuesday against Emmanuel Macron's flagship labor reforms, a key test as he stakes his presidency on overhauling the sluggish economy.

More than 180 street protests are planned nationwide against the reforms ike Roshe Cortez NM SP Negras Blancas , which are intended to tackle stubbornly high unemployment by loosening the rules that govern how businesses hire and fire people.

Some 4,000 strikes have been called under the action led by France's biggest trade union, the CGT, with rail workers, students and civil servants urged to -protest in cities from Paris to Marseille and Toulouse.

But the turnout will serve as a yardstick for unions' ability to mobilize Nike Classic Cortez SP Nylon Rojos Blancas , as deep splits have emerged in the labor movement between those determined to fight the reforms and those prepared to compromise.

The business-friendly Macron sparked a backlash last week by describing opponents of the shake-up as "slackers" and cynics, in comments blasted as "scandalous" by CGT chief Philippe Martinez.

Bruno Cautres of the Cevipof -political research institute said Macron had "thrown oil on the fire" with his choice of words.

"With the 'slackers' comment, there are all the ingredients for this to heat up," he said.

Air traffic controllers have also been urged to strike, and Irish low-cost -carrier Ryanair said Monday that it had canceled 110 flights scheduled for T-uesday.

The airline called on Macron's government and the European Commission "to take immediate action to prevent the skies over Europe being closed yet again" during the stoppage.
