Supporting and promoting international sport worldwide

The week in review

5th to 11th October

With road cycling still making up most of the sport headlines with the Giro d'Italia having started today, there is also something for mountain bike fans. The UCI MTB World Championships in Leogang, Austria, starts on Wednesday until Sunday. Apart from the usual mountain bike category, this year the championship also includes categories for the MTB Marathon World Championship and the e-MTB World Championship. School sports have made a tentative step back with the World Online Chess Championship that started today for a three-week period. Nairobi in Kenya is also staging a world first today. World Athletics have produced the Continental Tour Gold athletics events and we have managed to see a few meetings this year. The event taking place at the Nyayo National Stadium is the first time it will be held on the African Continent. This is a major step forward for athletics and other sports as the continent begins to emerge as a popular destination for future world event with the many options it provides. Curling makes a return on Saturday in Aberdeen with the World Mixed Curling Championship. Rugby Union news is that the draw for the Rugby World Championship 2023 will be made on December 14.

Every event that manages to take place is almost an achievement in itself. Based on information we are being provided from various news channels, many nations are in some type of battle to keep the infection rate of the virus down. High profile sport stars have understandably tested positive to Covid-19, but so far most authorities are treating the situation in an attitude of management, instead of returning to isolation periods of April and May earlier this year. This is the sensible option as even in the sporting world, we cannot afford to stop all events indefinitely. Authorities must be lauded for their efforts in staging a world event within so many restrictions to adhere to. We have a busy week ahead with a representation across many sports. Bear in mind that some of these may be subject to change.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
