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

The weekly sports review

30th August to 5th September

Last weekend Edmonton hosted the finals of the World Triathlon Series. Bermuda's Flora Duffy claimed the bronze, but the overall ranking meant a third World Title for the star triathlete. For the men, Norway's Kristian Blummenfelt won the event and together with Duffy, made history by winning the World Title and Olympic Title in the same year. Blummenfelt has also underlined his status as the greatest triathlete on the planet right now. Elaine Thompson-Herah stormed to a win in the 100m in Eugene, Oregon, at the Diamond League Meeting last weekend. The time was 10.54s beating her previous best of 10.61s set at the Tokyo Olympics. USA's JD Beach established himself as one of the very best TT riders in the Progressive American Flat Track paddock by winning the 74th Peoria TT in Illinois last Saturday. Briar Bauman is the rider to beat leading the current standings on 217 points with only five race meetings remaining. At the recent BMX Racing World Championships, Britain's Bethany Shriever added the world title to her Olympic crown. Shriever has also become the first woman to hold both BMX Supercross titles at the same time.

Nairobi recently successfully hosted the World Athletics U20 World Championships. Among the many standout performances, the South Africa men's 4x100m relay team broke the world record. Sasha Zhoya of France smashed the men's 110m hurdles record achieving a time of 12.72s. Sweden's Maja Askag won the long jump and triple jump gold. These were some of the amazing achievements and there are many more we could mention. Kenya is also fast becoming one of the top nations in Africa to host world class events having earlier staged a round of the World Rally Championship, and two European Tour golf tournaments. Last weekend was also the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Toyota claiming their fourth consecutive victory and the first for their No.7 GR010 Hybrid Hypercar. Some of the main events still in progress are the Mountain Bike World Championships, the Women's Ice Hockey World Championships, the Men's Junior Water Polo World Championships, and the Women's Hot Air Balloon World Championships. The next seven days look to be one of the busiest so far this year.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
