Only on three occasions was the tournament won by non-US athletes: in 2012 by the Mexican Juan P. Hernandez, in 2013 by the Englishman Greg Eason and in 2015 by the Venezuelan Jorge Garcia. Miami is a city of 470,914 inhabitants (6,100,000 in the metropolitan area) in the United States of America, the county seat of Miami-Dade County, Florida.
Considering only the number of inhabitants that are located within its administrative boundaries, it is the second largest city in Florida, but the urban area as a whole is by far the most populated in the state. Miami is the county seat and principal center of Miami-Dade County.
Miami was officially founded on July 28, 1896 with a population of approximately 400. In 1940, 172,172 people already lived there. According to the 2000 census, the city had a population of 362,470, while the greater metropolitan area totaled over 2 million.
In 2006, the population registered by the U.S. Census Bureau has risen to 404,048 residents. Despite its size and importance it is not the capital of the state of Florida, namely Tallahassee. The city is often confused with Miami Beach.
Miami's population explosion in recent years has been driven by immigration, both from abroad and from other US cities. Two United States Navy vessels have been named USS Miami, after the city.
