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 December

A sport we do not get to write about very often is Axe Throwing and in just over seven days, Tuscon in Arizona will be the host city for the biggest event on the World Axe Throwing League's calendar. The World Axe Throwing Championship features next Sunday where 64 of the world's top axe throwers will compete for the title. Floorball already features at the SEA Games currently in Manilla and from next Saturday until the 15th December, 16 teams will compete in the Women's World Floorball Championships 2019 with Neuchâtel in Switzerland as the host location. The sport is very much like indoor hockey, but with a lot less contact. The ball is plastic and hollow and the base of the stick is also made of plastic. There are a number of Dance Sport governing bodies and this time of the year is more busier on the calendar. Dublin will bring together a festival of dance presented by the World Dance Council starting on Tuesday and lasting until Sunday. The festival is also a World Championship tournament. Paris and in particular the Salon du Cheval, welcomes the Longines Masters Series this week. This is a prestigious Showjumping event and one of four locations spanning over three continents. 

Basel will be ready to host the 2019 UCI Indoor Cycling World Championships from Friday until Sunday. The event involves extended categories for Cycle-Ball and Artistic Cycling. From the 1st to 7th December, we will get to see some of the world's top golfers convene at Albany in the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge. Currently the 30th Southeast Asian Games is in progress in Manilla and from tomorrow until Saturday, Kathmandu and Pokhara in Nepal will be the host locations for the 13th South Asian Games. Seven nations will participate in the event. We do see a lot of value in regional games and hope to see more in the future that captures sports unique to the area. Brazil were recently crowned as the FIFA U17 World Champions and we are not far away from the FIFA Club World Championship. Before then we head to Antalya, a firm favourite for world sports events, for the IBSA Partially Sighted Football World Championships from Wednesday until the 15th December. Lastly, the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series has a double-header this week in Dubai when both the women and men have tournaments. This is the second leg for the women and the start of the season for the men. 

Until next time, we hope you have a great sporting week!
