Supporting and promoting international sport worldwide

The week in review

2nd to 8th November

Welcome to another review of current international sports events and what we can look forward to in the coming week. We feel we have been here before, only it is the end of October and not the end of March earlier this year when most of Europe was entering into a lockdown period. Reports appear to indicate the United Kingdom will have to face another national lockdown as a few nations in Europe have already followed that course. It will be difficult for many to take, but this period will pass and as a sports community, it is important to remain positive and stay focused on the plans ahead. 

We can bring some early rugby union news where New Zealand thumped Australia by the biggest margin between the two nations in a Bledisloe Cup and Tri-Nations match in Sydney today. The score was 43-5 and New Zealand have now retained the cup for 18 consecutive years. Six Nations enters into a final weekend with England Women already crowned champions. In the men's game it is a different story where all of Ireland, England and France can still win the title. As the UCI road cycling season comes to an end, we still have one week remaining of La Vuelta in Spain. Primož Roglic of Slovenia is the current leader and readers will remember the same rider leading the Tour de France to the penultimate stage before losing the yellow jersey in the time trial. The final stage is next Sunday. The city of Novi Sad in Serbia hosts the Sambo World Championships this week and the competition also covers a number of age categories. The same can be said for Bodybuilding and Fitness where Santa Susanna in Spain hosts the World Championships. One of the toughest sailing races starts next Sunday in Les Sables d'Olonne in France. The Vendée Global is the only race around the world, solo, non-stop, and without assistance. It is expected to finish somewhere in January 2021. Finally, Weihai in China hosts the Women's Table Tennis World Cup from next Sunday, with the men's event starting shortly after.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
