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

The weekly sports review

5th to 11th July

At age 21, USA's Sydney McLaughlin is already a world star. On Tuesday the 400m hurdles runner took matters a step up by shattering the world record at a US Olympic Trials meeting in Oregon. The time was 51.90 seconds. The northwest of the country was and still is experiencing a massive heatwave, which meant the race had to be postponed to the evening. Many believe McLaughlin will go even further at the Tokyo Olympics starting later this month on the 23rd July. Two days later Norway's star, Karsten Warholm, breaks the men's 400m hurdles world record at the Oslo Bislett Games with a time of 46.70 seconds. The Wanda Diamond League features in Stockholm tomorrow and fans will be eager to see how Warholm will approach the race. There are only three Diamond League Meetings remaining within July as athletes wrap up preparations for Tokyo. The British & Irish Lions completed a victory over Japan last Saturday in Edinburgh, before setting off for South Africa. In less than 30 minutes, their first match within the host nations kicks off in Ellis Park, Johannesburg, against the Sigma Lions. 

The most famous road cycling race, the Tour de France, has completed stage 8 with Tadej Pogacar of Slovenia the current holder of the coveted yellow jersey. Last Saturday, Demi Vollering of the Netherlands won the La Course by Le Tour de France. This was the final time the UCI Women's WorldTour race will feature. As from next year, the Tour de France Femmes will launch. It has taken a long time, but the women's version of the special tour will be welcomed by all cycling fans. Last Sunday, Brazil struck gold at the FIVB Volleyball Men's Nations League Final in Rimini by beating Poland 3-1, coming back from a set down. This week The Championships in Wimbledon complete the final week. Novak Djokovic is still going strong and next plays on Monday in his quest to claim all four Grand Slam titles this year. The UEFA Euro and the CONMEBOL Copa America is currently in the quarter-final stages with the finals scheduled for next weekend.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
