Helping non-Olympic and growing sport federations establish a global presence, increase athlete participation, and build their membership

The weekly sports review

14th to 20th June

Last Sunday Canada became the 2021 Ice Hockey World Champions by beating the 2019 holders, Finland, 3-2 after overtime. It is also Finland's ninth silver medal of all time. The bronze was comfortably won by USA against Germany with the final score 6-2. The championship was not held in 2020. It was initially uncertain whether the UCI BMX Freestyle World Championships would go ahead in Montpellier, but thankfully the organisers managed to stage a great event. Freestyle is divided into Flatland and Park. Flatland is performed on a level surface and is sometimes referred to as artistic cycling blended with breakdancing, while Park is more standardized street riding making use of ramps, rails, boxes and other objects to perform on. Gold medals went to France and Austria in Flatland, while Australia and USA reigned in Park. The mind sport Go had their 41st World Amateur Championship in Vladivostok complete last week with China's Ma Tianfang taking the title. Over in Milton Keynes in England, Algin Ouschan from Austria became the new World Pool Champion, which is also his second world title. 

Things are really looking up for fantastic performances at the forthcoming Tokyo Olympics. The Netherland's Sifan Hassan broke the women's 10,000m world record in Hengelo last Sunday. Two days later Ethiopia's Letesenbet Giday took a further 5 seconds off the world record at the same venue. On Friday Norway's wunderkind, Jakob Ingebrigtsen took 13 and a half seconds off this personal best to win the 5,000m at the Diamond League meeting in Florence. Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek to reach a Grand Slam final and his opponent tomorrow will be the experienced Novak Djokovic. The ladies final in currently underway between Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia. The UEFA Euro 2020 started last night in Rome with Italy defeating Turkey 3-0. The tournament is unique on this occasion with multiple venues across Europe.

This week there are major events in up 40 sports and golf fans will be looking out for the third Major starting on Thursday in San Diego. Horse racing fans will also be looking forward to Group One Racing at Ascot. Until next time, have a great sporting week.
