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

The weekly sports review

19th to 25th July

Last Sunday the Championships in Wimbledon presented Novak Djokovic the opportunity to claim his third Grand Slam of the year. The final score against Italy's Matteo Berretti was 6-7 (4-7) 6-4 6-4 6-3 and the win keeps the champion on course to complete all four Grand Slams within the same year. There may be some question marks whether Djokovic will participate in the US Open at the end of August, but we certainly hope to see him there. USA withstood a valiant effort by France to claim the FIBA U19 Men's Basketball World Cup 2021 in Riga, Latvia. Moving over to archery where America's Sawyer Sullivan beat the under-18 (cadet) compound men's world record for the 72-arrow 50-metre round twice in two days. Sullivan shot 708 and 714 out of a possible 720 points at the USA's youth nationals. The FMJD, the world governing body for the mind sport draughts, presented the men's and women's World Championships in Tallinn. It was a clean sweep for Russia as Alexander Schwarzman and Matrena Nogovitsyna claimed the gold. 

At the Tour de France, Slovenia's Tadej Pogačar is still the holder of the special yellow jersey and unless something dramatic happens in today's stage 20, tradition dictates that the final ride to Paris tomorrow is a mere formality for the leader. The nearest rival has to make up over five minutes today. Sandwich in Kent, England, is hosting the final and fourth Golf Major for the year. The 149th Open is currently led by South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen as the United Kingdom is basking in bright sunshine. Of course, the main event starting on Friday, will be the Olympic Games in Tokyo. What we can be certain of is that there will be athletes contracting the virus. The challenge for the authorities is to avoid an outbreak. We hope to see the Games go ahead as the nature of hosting sport in the current climate has changed altogether. In South Africa, we are looking forward to the first test between the Springboks and the British & Irish Lions in Cape Town next Saturday.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
