The week in review

21st to 27th October

Hello and welcome to most likely one of the busiest sporting weeks of the season. There are a small number of sports we do not get to hear of that often, but they all have World Championships on show this week. We start with Arm Wrestling and it will be Constanta in Romania showcasing the premier tournament on the WAF calendar. Next up is Basque Pelota and in particular Trinquete Sport played in a closed court with Oloron-Sainte-Marie in France as the host. We next head over to Fontana in California for the 8th Track World Championship in Model Auto Racing. To round it all off, the Dryland Sleddog Racing World Championship will be welcomed by Nybro in Sweden. The Bobsleigh and Skeleton season starts this week in Lillehammer with a youth tournament. With one season starting, another is coming to a close and on this occasion it is the FIM Superbikes World Championship with the final race weekend at the Losail International Circuit in Doha. Great Britain's Jonathan Rea is already crowned world champion. Orienteering also has the final World Cup round in Guangdong in China. 

In women's tennis the WTA Finals will be in Shenzhen in China starting next Sunday for a week. Staying with women's sport, Cairo will be getting ready for the CIB PSA Women's World Championship starting on Wednesday. Squash is a major sport in Egypt and they have a great chance for one of their stars to be crowned champion. In Rugby Union we have had two amazing quarter-finals today, albeit somewhat one-sided as the scorelines indicate. England will now meet New Zealand in the semi-final, while tomorrow's two matches between France v Wales and Japan v South Africa will determine the other semi-final. England and New Zealand are the favourites, but unfortunately one team will have to go home after next Saturday's match. Apart from three IAAF Gold Label road races next Sunday, next weekend also has an Ultra-marathon World Championship. Albi in France will stage the IAU 2019 24-hour World Championships on Saturday and Sunday. Brazil is getting ready to present the FIFA 2019 U17 World Cup starting on Saturday with the final on the 17th November. Boule Lyonnaise has the 2nd Women's World Cup of Nations to be hosted at Villa Alemana in Chile, while Izmir in Turkey will be the venue for the FMJD Youth Draughts World Championship starting on Sunday. 

We will be back next week!
