The week in review

12th to 18th October

Rugby Union fans have been waiting for seven months for an international match and this finally arrives tomorrow (or in a few hours) at the Sky Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand. The Bledisloe Cup, founded in 1931, is a trophy contested between Australia and New Zealand normally over three matches. This year it will be over four matches with the final round in Brisbane on the 7th November. Australia last held the trophy in 2002. Leogang in Austria has been entertaining mountain bike fans with the UCI MTB World Championships. Britain's Thomas Pidcock has been in great form winning both the e-MTB World Championships and the Men's U23 XCO World Championships. This year the organisers have combined the Downhill, e-MTB, and MTB Marathon World Championships at one location. Most of the BWF Badminton World Tour has been suspended or cancelled, but Odense V in Denmark is going ahead this week with the Denmark Open from Tuesday to Sunday. 

Staying with racket sports, Las Vegas is getting ready to host the 2020 3WallBall World Championships from Wednesday to Sunday. Racquetball, paddleball and American handball are all major sports in the United States and this annual championship combines the disciplines in one tournament. Chess is also making a welcome return with an event in Barcelona this week. The last chess tournament was held in Russia when the 2020 Candidates Tournament was cut short in March as the decision was made to close all international flights. The revised marathon calendar means we have a number of great races being lined up. Next Saturday is the World Athletics Half Marathon Championships in Gdynia, Poland. Latvia has become a favourite nation to host world sport events and next week the International Federation of Body Building presents the World Fit Model Championships in Riga. Lastly, a major championship is going down to the wire. The FIM Superbike World Championship has the final round at the Circuito Estoril in Portugal next weekend. The top three positions on the championship standings are dominated by Brits. Each round has two races and Jonathan Rea currently leads Scott Redding by 59 points and looks favourite to be crowned the world champion.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
