The weekly sports review

22nd to 28th March

We are 124 days away from the Tokyo Olympic Games with the official opening scheduled for the 23rd July. More than a month earlier the next major football competition begins in Europe with the UEFA Euro 2020 starting on the 11th June. Both these tournaments were postponed from last year. At present the United Kingdom is on course for spectators to attend matches by then as several will be hosted on the island. The same cannot be so certain for the rest of Europe as matches will be staged in several nations. This has much to do with each country's vaccination program and what the circumstances will be around safe travel for spectators. There may be matches behind closed doors. As for the Olympic Games, the Japanese organisers have taken the decision that no foreign travelers will be permitted to attend the various events as spectators. This was partly taken to mitigate risk of spreading the virus and also encourage locals to attend, who have until now been cautious of the safety. 

The fourth oldest sports trophy, the Auld Mug as it is affectionately known or the America's Cup, was contested over the last two weeks with the result concluded on Tuesday. The Italian team Luna Rossa was the challenger, and put up a good fight in the early stages to such an extent that after 6 races, it was all square. However, Team New Zealand pulled away from there and sealed the 36th occasion of the competition by reaching seven race wins first. The winter snow season is approaching the end with most of the final competitions concluding by next Sunday. We have no fewer than five UCI WorldTour and Women's WorldTour races this week. Motorsport fans have been waiting patiently for the MotoGP and Formula One season to begin. The opening race weekends are finally here with Qatar and Bahrain as the respective host nations. Stockholm hosts the ICU Figure Skating World Championships, while we also have an international week in football. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport!
