The Weekly Sports Review

14th to 20th February

It has been a spectacular week of sport with many headlines coming from the Beijing Winter Olympics. Several tournament finals also featured last weekend with the first taking us to the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua where England took on India in the ICC U19 Men's Cricket World Cup final. England were bowled out for 189 in the 45th over. India's response brought the winning runs in the 48th over to become champions by four wickets. Going over to football results and China became the winners of the AFC Women's Asia Cup fighting back from 2-0 down to beat South Korea by 3-2 at the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. At the Olembe Stadium in Yaounde on Sunday night Senegal overcame Egypt in a penalty shoot-out to be crowned the Africa Cup of Nations champions for the third time of asking. In Amsterdam the best of Europe gathered for the UEFA Futsal Euro Championship. Portugal came back from 2-0 down to beat Russia 4-2 and reclaim their title.

Jaufental in Italy hosted the 13th FIL Luge Junior World Championships on natural track with the local stars dominating the men's competition. Fabian Brunner was crowned the champion in the men's singles, while Austria's Riccarda Ruetz claimed the women's singles title. Germany's 35-year-old Johannes Ludwig produced a spectacular performance to win gold in the Luge men's singles at the Winter Olympics earlier in the week. World Triathlon hosted the Winter Triathlon Championships in Andorra and the decision to skip the Winter Duathlon World Championships paid dividends for Russia's Daria Rogizina who was crowned women's champion. Italy's Franco Pesavento completed a great day for the Azzuri to win the men's world title. Rogizina rounded off her brilliant achievement by winning the Mixed Relay title with compatriot Pavel Andreev. 

Staying with winter sports and on this occasion the Worldloppet series featured in Germany last weekend in Oberammergau. It was a Swedish double for Lina Korsgren and Max Novak at the König Ludwig Lauf. Speed Skater and Dutch superstar Ireen Wust became the first person to win an individual gold medal at five different Olympics by retaining her 1500m title in stunning fashion. To top it all Wust set an Olympic record of one minute 53.28 seconds. USA's Lindsey Jacobellis won the the women's snowboard cross gold, 16 years after throwing it away in Turin from a mistake with the finish line in sight. Jacobellis never stopped chasing the dream with her fifth Olympic Games delivering the medal. 

Although it is very difficult to single out the best result or performance of the week, a special mention must go to USA's surfing legend Kelly Slater who made history by winning the opening round of the World Surf League Championship Tour in Oahu, Hawaii. A few weeks away from turning 50, Slater won his first Championship Tour event 30 years ago in 1992. Wildcard Moana Jones Wong also made history by beating favourite Carissa Moore at the same event. In Staten Island at the World Athletics Indoor Tour, Spain's Adel Mechaal set a new European indoor 3000m record of 7:30.82. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
