The Weekly Sports Review

21st to 27th March

Rugby Union's premier northern hemisphere competition has reached the final round today with a couple of permutations on who the outright champion could be. France, a team in great form and who play England in Paris later this evening, only require a win to take the Six Nations title. Over in Dublin the home side will be hoping England can do them a favour and claim a win at Stade de France, but first Ireland will need to beat the visiting Scotland. In addition, the Rugby Europe Championship also concludes this week with the title match between Georgia and Spain in Tbilisi on Sunday. Spain recently qualified for the Rugby World Cup to be played in France next year. The last time Spain qualified was in 1999. Normally the Women's Six Nations feature at the same time as the men's competition, but will now commence from next Saturday. We will know by this evening whether it is France or Ireland, with both teams are building strongly towards the pinnacle of 2023. Moving away from rugby union to something that requires a different type of intensity. The World Rally-Raid Championship is sanctioned by the FIA (world governing body for motor racing) and the FIM (world governing body for motorcycling) and features five annual races normally in very difficult desert terrain. The Dakar Rally is the most famous of them all. After stage two, the top driver with a narrow lead is France's Sebastien Loeb, while in motorcycling it is Great Britain's Sam Sunderland with a more comfortable lead. Round three will take us to Kazakhstan from 25-30 April. 

Norway's Marius Lindvik is the new FIS Ski Flying World Champion after amazing performances at Monterbakken in Vikersund, Norway. Second place went to Slovenia's Timi Zajc, with Austria's Stefan Kraft completing the podium. Östersund in Sweden recently hosted the ISSF Sleddog Sport World Championship with all to aim for in fourteen separate categories. Seven nations won gold with Germany topping the list on six. Last Sunday was also the closing ceremony of the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games. It was expected for China to top the medals table who ended with 61 (18 gold), while Ukraine came in at second with 29 (11 gold) and Canada in third with 25 (8 gold). In carom billiards at the recent World 3-Cushion Team Championships in Viersen, Germany, it was Turkey who successfully defended the title of 2019. Remaining with Turkey and on this occasion the nation hosted a World Snooker Tour ranking event for the first time. Judd Trump was the winner beating Matthew Salt 10-4 in the final of the Turkish Masters. The International University Sports Federation recently hosted the 2022 FISU World University Championship Cross Country with Great Britain dominating the event. 

Amman in Jordan hosted the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Boxing Championships with an outstanding number of 352 female and male boxers attending from 21 nations. A total of 51 champions were crowned in the competition. South Africa are the World Champions of the IIHF Men's Ice Hockey World Championship Division III, Group B that was played in Cape Town. This is a great model for the sport where world championships are available to emerging nations. Finally, the Netherland's Kjeld Nuis beat his own speed skating record by skating 103km/h on a frozen lake in Norway. Nuis improved on his previous speed by 10km/h.

We continue to hope for a peaceful resolution in the Ukraine. Until next time, have a great week in sport.
