The Weekly Sports Review

4th to 10th July

The World Games

Birmingham in Alabama is applying the final touches to their readiness as hosts of the 2022 World Games. It is a very special event that provides sports not contested at the Olympic Games, a chance to be included on the prestigious world stage. The host cities are also not required to construct new venues, making it more appealing to make a bid. The first World Games was held in 1981 in Santa Clara, California, and next Thursday will open the 12th edition overall and the 2nd on US soil. Asia has hosted on three occasions, South America once, while Europe completes with six. Africa and Oceania have not hosted as yet and the challenge will be for organisers to take the Games to these continents in future. China's Chengdu has been awarded to host in 2025.

Montréal staged the World Triathlon Championship Series last weekend. Britain's Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee won the Elite field, while France delivered another sizzling Mixed Relay title. Modern Pentathlon completed the World Cup Finals with Elodie Clouvel of France and Woongtai Jun of South Korea claiming gold. USA's Sydney McLaughlin and Sweden's Mondo Duplantis set the pace this week in athletics with outstanding performances. McLauglin broke her own 400m hurdles world record, while Duplantis set an outdoor pole vault world record of 6.16. In archery it was Brazil's Marcus D'Almeida making headlines in Paris at the latest Archery World Cup, claiming his first major win after achieving several silver medals at previous competitions. 

Japan's Ogata Yoshiyuki and USA's Natalia Grossman have been crowned the Sport Climbing Boulder Champions for the season. Heraklion in Crete recently hosted the U18 Beach Handball World Championship with Germany and Croatia winning the men's and women's titles respectively. Serbia's men and France's women secured the FIBA 3x3 Basketball World Cup held in Antwerp. Golf fans had an opportunity to see South Korea's Gee Chun play at the peak of her career to claim the Women's PGA Championship in Bethesda, Maryland. The Professional Squash Association also had their World Tour Finals in Cairo with local duo Nour El Sherbini and Mostafa Asal finishing in style. 

Sweden have won the World Orienteering Sprint Relay title, while the Men's and Women's Sprint Finals were claimed by Tove Alexandersson (SWE) and Kristian Jones (GBR) respectively. Poland's Iga Świątek set a new World Tennis Association unbeaten run record of 37 matches, the best since 2000. Team England won the FIDE World Senior Team Chess Championship hosted in Acqui Terme in Italy. The nation continued their winning streak also in football by winning the UEFA U19 Euro Finals beating Israel 3-1 in extra time. However, England's Stuart Broad made unwanted headlines for conceding 35 runs in one over in the current test match against India, the highest in test cricket.

See you at The World Games. Until next time, have a great week in sport.
