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

The weekly sports review

23rd to 29th August

Last weekend we had our first conclusion to a motorsport season for 2021. The FIA Formula E World Championship had a double-header in Berlin with 13 drivers in contention for the world title. Norman Nato of France won the season finale, but the overall title was claimed by Nyck de Vries of The Netherlands. Only 8 points separates the top three and 19 points for the top ten, making it one of the more open seasons of Formula E. The top team award went to Mercedes-EQ Formula E. Moving over to men's road cycling where La Vuelta in Spain has completed stage 8. Belgium's Jasper Philipsen leads the general points ranking. There are still two weeks remaining of the tour. This weekend also features the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans, one component of the unofficial Triple Crown of Motorsport (the Indy 500 and Formula One's Monaco Grand Prix are the other two). Two World Championships started on Friday, with Calgary hosting Women's Ice Hockey and Moscow hosting FIFA Beach Soccer. Bermuda's Flora Duffy is hoping to make history this weekend by becoming the first-ever Olympic and World Triathlon Champion in the same year. The World Triathlon Championship finals are currently taking place in Edmonton. The Paragliding World Cup Tour also concluded during the week with individual titles going to Luc Armant and Seiko Fukuoka Naville. The New Carlisle Newts were crowned the 2021 World Wiffle Ball Champions last weekend beating the Ohio Knuckleheads in the final.

The Summer Paralympic Games in Tokyo is the top event to look out for this week. The Paralympics start on Tuesday and conclude on the 5th September. In addition, Poker fans will be looking forward to the World Poker Tour Online World Championships starting next Sunday. Cyprus is the host nation of the World Beach Sambo Championships, a combat sport becoming increasingly popular internationally. Biathletes will also be getting ready for the IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships hosted by the Czech Republic. Finally, Thepchaiya Un-Nooh became a sensation by achieving an incredible 155 break in snooker in under 8 minutes. Thankfully the achievement was caught on camera. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
