The Weekly Sports Review

18th to 24th July

History made in Rugby Union

In rugby union, the tradition has been for teams in the northern hemisphere to tour their main rivals in the southern hemisphere in what is best described as the Summer Internationals. World Rugby has made great strides in moving closer to unifying the domestic seasons worldwide. This means that the governing body can designate windows in the season dedicated to internationals. Historically the southern hemisphere has dominated the tours to their nations, but last weekend every touring team beat the hosts. Ireland and Wales also won in New Zealand and South Africa respectively for the first time in history. It illustrates the dominance of the southern hemisphere over the years, but equally also the potential shift in power to the north. Ireland has gone one better today and won the series in New Zealand for the first time in history by beating New Zealand 32-22 in Wellington. England have also won the third test in Sydney to claim the series. It is now up to Wales and Scotland to go on and do the same. 

History was made for Kazakhstan last weekend at Wimbledon when Elena Rybakina became the first player from her adopted nation to win a Grand Slam title. Rybakina beat Ons Jabeur 3-6 6-2 6-2. On Sunday Novak Djokovic won his seventh Wimbledon title, his fourth in a row at the famous courts, and now has 21 Grand Slam titles to his name. History was also made in the FIA World Endurance Championship when Sarah Bovy became the first woman to clinch a pole position in a decade of the championship at the 6 Hours of Monza. Spain beat Norway to claim the UEFA U19 Women's Championship. United States won their fourth consecutive World Lacrosse Women's Championship beating their neighbours Canada 11-8. In Singapore, Austalia's men and China's women won the FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup 2022, which took place in the footsteps of the iconic Marina Bay Sands.

The World Triathlon Championship Series is approaching its completion with Bermuda's Flora Duffy and New Zealand's Hayden Wilde winning in Hamburg. Further basketball news is that USA claimed the top position of the FIBA U17 World Cup hosted in Spain. Great Britain's Kean Nakamura-Berta has claimed the FIA European Karting Championship - OK. Zimbabwe and the Netherlands have qualified for the T20 Cricket World Cup to feature in Australia later this year. Staying with cricket and New Zealand's Michael Bracewell hit a record breaking 24 runs off the last over in a T20 International against Ireland to claim the match. The Hague completed the final day of the Youth Sailing World Championships where Spain has won the coveted Nations Trophy. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
