The Philippines top the medals table at the 30th Southeast Asian Games held in Manila with a total of 387

The week in review

2nd to 8th September

We start by looking at a few recent results of events that finished earlier this week. Italy struck gold in Tunis at the FIVB Boys' U19 Volleyball World Championship after an absence of 22 years since their last success. The final was played against Russia with the match ending 3-1 to the eventual winners. Over in Las Vegas at the World Bowling Women's Championship, it was Colombia who triumphed taking the team gold against Sweden. Cherie Tan of Singapore won the Masters Gold, which also became the first gold medal for Singapore. Team USA won the singles and trios titles, while Sweden won the doubles gold. After the heroics of Ben Stokes for England in the third Ashes test ensuring a draw with two more matches to go, we now look ahead to Wednesday for the fourth test. Australia had the upper hand throughout the match and will have their former captain Steve Smith back to give them a further boost in Manchester. Should Australia win, they will retain the Ashes despite a potential draw in the series. England generally do very well at The Oval in London, which will be the venue for the final test.

Earlier this year the ICC, cricket's world governing body, announced the start of the 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship. It started on the 1st August 2019 and will conclude with the final Ashes test at Lord's in June 2021. It is finally off the ground after ten years of planning and two earlier failed attempts to begin the championships in 2013 and 2017. Only nine of the twelve test nations will be involved with the tournament played every two years. One of the major world tournaments starting in just under two weeks, is the Rugby World Cup 2019 with hosts Japan opening the event in Tokyo against Russia on Friday, 20th September. A week earlier they will have a warm-up match against South Africa, who will be the first country to arrive in Japan. All nations have now also announced their squads of 31 players. We have a great selection of sports events this week. It is also the final Red Bull Air Race in Japan and having mentioned Bowling earlier, the men have a World Championship starting on Monday. In addition, next weekend is the Ironman World Championship for both women and men with Nice hosting. This week is also the final week of the 2019 US Tennis Open.
