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

The weekly sports review

26th July to 1st August

The Olympic Games would undoubtedly be considered the biggest sporting event of all. Having already been postponed from 2020 and then almost cancelled altogether, the opening ceremony finally took place in Tokyo on Friday. The stadium was empty, but the spectacular nature of the event was not lost on us. Already a number of athletes have been ordered to quarantine and there will be more, but this is the nature of sport at least for now. The Games must continue. Gold medal results have already come in today in mixed team archery, men's road cycling, fencing, judo, shooting, taekwondo and weightlifting. It was also announced earlier in the week that Brisbane has been awarded the 2032 Summer Olympics. 

There are two big results from the previous weekend. In the FIA World Rally Championship in Estonia, Finland's Kalle Rovanperä became the youngest winner of a round. The 20-year-old Finn is more than two years younger than Jari-Matti Latvala, also from Finland and now his team principle, when he claimed the record in 2008. Over to Sandwich in England where Colin Morikawa won the 149th Open. The 24-year-old must certainly be considered as the champion golfer of the year. Morikawa has now won seven men's majors in the last eleven months. Looking ahead, the British & Irish Lions play their first test against South Africa in just under one hour. The Concacaf Gold Cup reaches the semi-final and final stage next week. 

Our aim is always to list every sport. For those represented at the Olympic Games, these federations are already established. Our focus is on assisting non-Olympic and growing federations to also get to that stage to be included in the Olympic program. Even if that is not possible, our goal is for every sport to be represented around the world. We have listed all the events for the week for you.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
