The week in review

16th to 22nd September

Most of Europe is experiencing some great sunshine as we approach the end of the summer season, which makes staging an outdoor sports tournament a much easier task. This also looks to be the case for most of the week ahead. There are a number of major tournaments starting over the next few days and we have already mentioned the Rugby World Cup 2019 in the previous review. As a recap, the first match starts on Friday in Tokyo with the hosts playing Russia. Baku in Azerbaijan is getting ready to welcome the 37th Rhythmic Gymnastic World Championships to feature from the Monday to Sunday. The event is for senior athletes in both individual and group categories. We then head to the Canary Islands and specifically Tenerife where the CMAS Underwater Photo and Video World Championships will start on Tuesday and close on Sunday. CMAS will also be presenting a Sport Diving World Cup hosted by Phuket in Thailand and this event starts on Wednesday. We then head further north and staying in Thailand, it is Pattaya to showcase the Weightlifting World Championships also starting on Wednesday. 

Langley in British Columbia is currently preparing to host the World Lacrosse Indoor Men's Championships, which will start on Thursday until the 28th September. On the same day Lanaken in Belgium stages the Jumping World Breeding Championships for Young Horses, which concludes on Sunday. A famous event for Bodybuilding and Powerlifting fans is the Arnold Classic to be staged at Barcelona from Friday to Sunday. The tournament takes its name from the even more famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. There are two marathons over the weekend, both with IAAF Gold Label status. The Czech Republic and China are the respective host nations. Fishing makes a welcome return with the CIPS Boat Angling World Championships for U21 and seniors in Gallipoli, Turkey. UCI stage two cycling world championships over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday has Grachen in Switzerland hosting the Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships, while on Sunday the area around Harrogate in England showcase the Road Cycling World Championships until the 29th September. On Sunday we have the next round of the FIA Formula One World Championship in Singapore. This championship has become very interesting since Leclerc has won the last two races for Ferrari. 

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
