The Weekly Sports Review

18th to 24th April

Last weekend Montréal was privileged to witness some of the best speed skaters compete at the International Skating Union Speed Skating World Championship. The standout performances were South Korea's Choi Minjeong and Hungary's Shaoang Liu claiming gold in the 1000m and 1500m. Both Minjeong and Liu won the overall titles. Japan's Nana Takagi has also decided to hang up her Speed Skating blades. The 29-year-old became the first Japanese female athlete to win multiple titles at the Olympic Winter Games. In Ice Hockey we continue with a number of World Championships in various divisions and groups. Three completed within the week with Belgium's women winning Division III, Group A; Great Britain's women taking gold in Division II, Group A; and more recently China's women overcoming Poland in Division I, Group B. Staying with theme of ice sports, Sweden's men won their fourth successive World Championship in Curling. Canada were beaten to the silver medal by 8-6, while Italy overcame USA by 13-4 to claim bronze. 

US discus thrower Valarie Allman added 30 cm to her own continental record, throwing 71.46m at the Triton Invitation athletics meeting. Allman produced the farthest throw in the world for almost 30 years, elevating her to 15th on the world all-time list. At last weekend's Rotterdam Marathon, Olympic silver medalist Abdi Nageeye of the Netherlands achieved his first career victory in the classic distance, while Ethiopia’s Haven Hailu won the women’s race. Moving over to the World Triathlon Middle Distance Duathlon Championships in Alsdorf, elite athletes Kenneth Vandendriessche (BEL) and Diede Diederiks (NED) became the new champions. For fans of the sport Trials that features as a discipline in both cycling and motorcycling, it is Spain's Toni Bou who is stamping his authority at the FIM X-Trial World Championship. Bou has so far achieved his fourth consecutive win of the season and is 30 points clear of second place on the overall standings. 

At the recent World Darts Federation Lakeside World Championship, Eleanor Cairns became the inaugural L-style WDF Girls World Champion. Bradly Roes took the Boys’ title, Beau Greaves claimed the Women's title, while Neil Duff overcame a slow start in an 11-set thriller to win the 2022 WDF Men’s World Championship. At the FEI Jumping World Cup, Martin Fuchs of Switzerland became the champion in Leipzig, beating a field of 35 athletes over three days of grueling jumping. India claimed gold in Mixed Doubles and the Women's title at the recent World Squash Team Doubles Championships in Glasgow. England won the Men's title. USA's Shane Van Boening is the champion of the world after beating Albin Ouschan in the 2022 World Pool Championship final at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes. The first Golf Major completed last Sunday at the famous Augusta ground with Scottie Scheffler becoming the latest star to wear the green jacket at The Masters. 

At the recent UCI Mountain Bike World Cup at Petrópolis in Brazil, multiple World Champion and World Cup winner, Nino Schurter, equaled an all-time MTB win record. The Netherland's reigned supreme at the FIH Hockey Women's Junior World Cup in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Germany claimed silver with England completing the podium. Staying with South Africa, the nation has been awarded to host the inaugural ICC Women's U19 T20 World Cup in January next year. Australia has also been selected to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
