The week in review

23rd to 29th September

It was initially a nervy start by Japan, but superior fitness and experience eventually saw the hosts run out 30-10 victors against Russia at the opening match of the Rugby World Cup 2019. Kotaro Matsushima also became the first Japanese player to score a hat trick of tries. As mentioned before, it is regarded as the most open tournament on this occasion, but New Zealand are still the favourites to lift the trophy. On Friday we see the start of the main event on the IAAF calendar. Doha will be getting ready to host the World Athletics Championships until the final day on the 6th October. A sport with not too many international competitions each year is Boule Lyonnaise and from Monday to Saturday Alassio in Italy will showcase the U18 and U23 World Championships. Moving over to La Seu d'urgell, a small town located in the Catalan Pyrenees in Spain, where the International Canoe Federation will present the Canoe Slalom and Wildwater Canoeing World Championships from Wednesday to Sunday. The terrain is perfected suited for the competition. One of the premier showjumping world tour events heads to New York over the weekend for the penultimate round of the Longines Global Champions Tour. Pieter Devos of Belgium is currently ranked the number one rider.

Investing in youth sport is very important for the future and Judo makes no exception with the Cadets World Championships for individuals and teams to be hosted by Almaty in Kazakhstan. This competition runs from Wednesday until Sunday. In addition the Muay Thai Youth World Championships starts on Saturday Antalya in Turkey. The long season of Motocross reaches the final round for 2019 as we head to Assen in The Netherlands for the FIM MXGP of Nations on Sunday. The International Federation of Match Poker presents the start of the Nations Cup that will feature in four continents over the next few months determining qualification for the final round in Lima to be held in December. Beijing hosts a major tennis tournament on the ATP and WTA tour calendars. The China Open starts on Saturday until the 6th October. Two further World Championships of importance is the 3 WallBall World Championships is Las Vegas. Racquetball is a major feature of the tournament. Mountain Running is the other major event over the weekend when the World Masters Mountain Running Championships will be hosted in the Gagliano del Capo region of Italy.
