The week in review

30th November to 6th December

Last week when we commented on the ATP Finals in London, we mentioned we may still see a Djokovic v Nadal final. Well, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev had other ideas and overpowered their opponents. It was the second appearance for Thiem in the final, but it was Russia's Medvedev who eventually claimed the title. In the IBSF Skeleton World Cup Janine Flock of Austria and Martins Dukurs of Latvia continue with their impressive form securing second consecutive wins in back-to-back competitions in Sigulda. We have reached day 19 at the Vendée Globe with the majority of the chasing pack near the middle of the Atlantic on the same longitude as the Cape of Good Hope. The skipper in the lead is Charlie Dalin of France as they look to pass below the tip of Africa and head toward the difficult stretch of the Indian Ocean. There are 33 boats entered made up of 22 French skippers. Other nationalities include Spain, Germany, Japan, Italy, Finland, Switzerland and Great Britain. To recap, the Vendée Globe is a single-handed non-stop round the world yacht race. 

Some of the sports to look out for in the coming week that we do not often hear too much about, are the World Axe Throwing Championships in Atlanta and the eSports World Championships in Eilat. The winter sport season is starting to build up, but not all disciplines have started yet. These may still be impacted by the current conditions we are experiencing.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
