Helping sport federations grow themselves, their athletes, and their membership

The weekly sports review

31st May to 6th June

As always, we like to begin the review with a number of great achievements of the past week. South Africa's Irvette van Zyl broke the women's 50km world record last Sunday during the Nedbank Runified race in Gqeberha, South Africa. Van Zyl's time was 3:04:23, taking three minutes off the previous mark held by Britain's Aly Dixon. Simone Biles, USA's gymnastic sensation, became the first woman in history to land a Yurchenko double pike in competition. Biles achieved the move at the US Classic in Indianapolis last Saturday. Great Britain's Jonathan Rea joined an exclusive club at the opening race of the FIM Superbike World Championship. Rea came the first Superbike rider to reach 100 wins joining the likes of other riders Valentino Rossi and Giacomo Agostini. The difference is Rea's achievement is within Superbike only. Last weekend in Lisbon was a big weekend for World Triathlon. The Swiss team won bronze at the World Triathlon Mixed Relay Olympic Qualification and 48 hours later, Nicola Spirig claimed the victory in the World Cup. Phil Mickelson defied his age (50 years) to become a Major champion once again. Mickelson won the PGA Championship taking his total tally to 45 victories on the PGA Tour. The World Curling Team Championship concluded last weekend in Aberdeen with Scotland claiming the gold.

Rimini in Italy is currently buzzing with activity as the FIVB Women's and Men's Volleyball Nations League is being contested by sixteen teams each. The same can be said for Riga in Latvia where the 2021 Ice Hockey World Championship is being contested. In Group A, Russia, Switzerland and Slovakia top the table, while Group B is lead by Kazakhstan and Finland. The latter team are the defending champions from 2019, as last year's event was cancelled. At the Giro d'Italia we have the penultimate stage with Egan Arley Bernal Gomez still the holder of the Maglia Rosa. Stage 20 is 164km that includes a number of climbs. Among the main events to look out for this week are the Surf City El Salvador ISA World Surfing Games, the World Pool Championships in England, the World Judo Championships Seniors and Seniors Teams in Hungary, the 2021 UCI Urban World Championships in France, the 41st World Amateur Go Championship in Russia, and the World Skate Street World Championships 2021 in Italy.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
