Supporting and promoting every sport worldwide

The week in review

11th to 17th January

Hello and welcome back! Let's write about sport and not the negative stuff we read so much about these days. The main pack at the Vendée Globe is off the coast of Argentina more or less at a longitude of Mar del Plata. Further up the coast are two skippers nearer to Uruguay, while the leader is not too far from São Paulo. Assuming everything goes as planned for Yannick Bestaven, the French skipper should reach Les Sables-d'Olonne in France in under two weeks as the winner. As a recap, the Vendée Globe is a sailing race around the world that is solo, non-stop and without assistance. Park City in Utah and Whistler in Canada are hosts to the North American Cup that includes various skiing, snowboarding, bobsleigh and skeleton events. Whistler in particular will feature qualification for the World Championships. The World Badminton Tour and the FIM Supercross World Championship seasons start this week. Cairo is getting ready to host the 27th Men's Handball World Championship, while the Walt Disney Resort in Florida hosts the University Cheerleading World Championships. We also have the UCI Masters Cyclo-Cross World Championships in Mol, Belgium. Their neighbours, The Netherlands, will be hosting the ISU European Speed Skating Championships at Heerenveen. Also note the 2021 Dakar Rally currently in Saudi Arabia concludes this coming Friday.

It's a busy week with a lot of winter sport activity as to be expected, but also some new tournaments in handball, badminton, supercross and cheerleading. Until next time, have a great sporting week!
