The week in review

17th to 23rd February

Last Sunday in South Africa a nation defied the odds and became World Cup champions for the first time. Bangladesh is this nation and they beat the favourites India to claim the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup. This is a very exceptional performance and one can also see the fruits of a lot of hard work in their senior men's and women's teams in various tours and tournaments around the world. One of these tournaments starts on Friday where the ICC present the second World Cup of the year to be hosted by Australia. The ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 features from the 21st February to the 8th March with ten teams will be competing for the trophy. Australia, having won it four times before, are the current holders. The biggest event of the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation season are the World Championships and this year Altenberg in Germany will showcase the event. Over the coming weekend we get to see 2-woman and 2-man Bobsleigh, while 4-man Bobsleigh will feature on the following weekend. We head to Göteborg in Sweden on Thursday for the FEI Multi-discipline Equestrian World Cup that also includes showjumping. Ice Hockey makes a welcome return with the 2020 IIHF Women's World Championship from next Sunday in Akureyri in Iceland. The competition is for Division II, Group B and the teams are Australia, Croatia, Iceland, New Zealand, Turkey and Ukraine. Staying with Winter Sports, the area around Umeå and Vindeln in Sweden will be the location for the Junior World Ski Orienteering Championships 2020 from Thursday until the 26th February. 

With so many sports to mention, we aim to review most of the biggest events. We have seen a number of Bandy World Championships in the new season already and from Wednesday until Saturday eight teams will compete for the 2020 Women's Bandy World Championship in Oslo. The UCI WorldTour will feature the third road race of 2020 with Abu Dhabi as the host city. Over to Mexico where the Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City host the World Golf Championships - Mexico Championship with Jordan Spieth returning for his fourth appearance. Oberhof is a town in the Schmaldalden-Meiningen district of Thuringia, Germany. It is here where the best Luge junior athletes will convene for the FIL Luge Junior World Championships that will feature over two days. Staying with junior athletes, Tomaszów Mazowiecki in Poland hosts the ISU World Junior Speed Skating Championships over the weekend. Lastly, New Zealand will be the host nation of the WBSC U18 Men's Softball World Cup from Saturday until the 1st March.
