The week in review

25th to 31st January

Hello and welcome back to a new review of some selected results and what to expect over the next week in sport. Yesterday we had the Junior and U23 2-woman and 2-man Bobsleigh World Championships at St. Moritz. Germany and France received gold for the women's pairs, while Germany and Romania claimed gold for the men's pairs. Bangladesh have beaten West Indies in the second one-day international in Chittagong, which now places them third on the ICC ODI Rankings Table. They are a side who have become tougher to beat at home and this is a great achievement for the nation. The 27th IHF Handball World Championship is approaching the final week in Cairo. The final match is scheduled for next Sunday. Next weekend is also the pinnacle event of cyclo-cross. Ostend will host the 2021 UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships with great rivalry to be expected between the elite riders of Belgium and the Netherlands.

From Thursday is also the start of the sport shooting season with a shogun grand prix to be hosted by Rabat, Morocco. Karlsruhe in Germany begins the World Athletics Indoor Tour (Gold) next Friday. Heerenveen also begins a bridge world title with a series of matches between Roel Boomstra and Alexander Georgiev that will last for two weeks. Thailand has recently been hosting two Badminton World Tour events and from Wednesday to Sunday we will see the revised time for the 2020 BWF World Tour Finals that had to be postponed. The Vendée Globe is most likely approaching the final week with Charlie Dalin of France currently leading a group of seven skippers. The leading pack is approaching the Azores before making the final approach to France. Main events to look out for in the next two weeks are the Six Nations rugby union, the Ski & Snowboard World Championships, and the Australian Tennis Open.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
