Supporting and promoting international sport worldwide

The week in review

26th October to 1st November

As so many seasons have been cancelled this year, it is great to see the Badminton World Tour with two back-to-back events in Europe. Last weekend Anders Antonsen of Denmark and Nozomi Okuhara of Japan won the singles at the Denmark Open. This week the tour heads to Saarbrücken in Germany. In terms of the BWF World Tour, the Saarlorlux Open 2020 is the last for the year as all remaining events have been cancelled. Last weekend a world champion was crowned in Estoril, Portugal. Jonathan Rea of Great Britain is the FIM Superbike World Champion for 2020. It is a great achievement especially for Great Britain, occupying the top three positions on the rider standings. Tomorrow is the final stage of the Giro d'Italia with Wilco Kelderman of Team Sunweb in possession of the Rosa. This year La Vuelta in Spain overlaps the Giro d'Italia as a result of the congested season. 

It almost feels too soon for winter sports, but we are fast approaching the season now. Last weekend Soelden in Austria hosted the FIS Alpine World Cup with Marta Bassino of Italy and Lucas Braathen of Norway claiming the honours. It is Six Nations this weekend and concluding next Sunday, to complete the 2020 season for both men and women. Already there has been some 'controversy' as England were due to play the Barbarians at Twickenham tomorrow, but the game has been called off as Covid-19 restrictions have been breached by some team members. The city of Bydgoszcz in northern Poland hosts the World University Championships Mind Sports from Monday to Friday. 

We hope things are as good as they possibly can be for everyone despite the current circumstances. As we head into another week, most summer sport seasons are approaching their final events. It heralds the beginnings of the winter season and the many sports to look forward to. Until next time, have a great sporting week!
