The week in review

3rd to 9th February

This week the theme is on a number of Youth Championships. We start with Winterberg, a town in the Hochsauerland district of North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany, who will be getting ready to welcome the IBSF Skeleton Junior World Championships on Friday, while Saturday and Sunday will be dedicated to the Bobsleigh Junior and U23 World Championships. Luge also features with the FIL Youth Games to be hosted in Lendak, Slovakia over the weekend. In Cricket the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa is approaching the final week. England and Sri Lanka will contest the Plate Final on Monday, while Tuesday and Thursday will feature the semi-finals. India and Pakistan play first and Bangladesh and New Zealand contest the second match with the final scheduled for Sunday in Potchefstroom. 

In the Australian Open, 21-year-old Sofia Kenin secured her first Grand Slam title becoming the youngest American woman to win a major since Serena Williams. Kenin won her match in emphatic style by coming from a set down to defeat former World No.1 Garbiñe Muguruza. Tomorrow's men's final is between Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem with Djokovic winning six of the ten head-to-head matches so far. Heading to Italy where Asiago will host the ITU Winter Triathlon World Championships over the weekend. Six Nations started today for the men, while tomorrow features three women's matches. Wales are the defending champions and started today with a trouncing of Italy in Cardiff. A much bigger match awaits them next weekend in the form of Ireland. England are also strong contenders for the title. In the women's competition, it looks to be France and England again who will remain the contenders for the title. Lastly, Paris will be the host city for the 2020 World Rowing Indoor Championships on Friday and Saturday. 

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
