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

The weekly sports review

6th to 12th September

Tomorrow is the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 and the past few days have been highlighted by many fantastic history-making achievements. This was particularly the case for Italy's Bebe Vio who successfully defended her wheelchair fencing women's foil individual category B title. Besides the two gold medals, she has previously won three consecutive world championships titles in 2015, 2017 and 2019. In powerlifting Mexico's Amalia Perez took her sixth Paralympic medal and fourth gold. Britain's Hannah Cockroft secured her 7th gold in wheelchair racing. In wheelchair rugby, or also known as murder ball in the USA, Great Britain became the first European nation to win the gold. Norway's Salu Ageze Kashafali, who escaped the Democratic Republic of Congo as a child during the war, broke his own world record in the 100m T12. Nigeria's Folashade Oluwafemiayo took the women’s up to 86kg gold medal and beat her own world record twice in one day. There was no stopping 44-year-old Cheri Madsen of the United States who signed off in style with a medal, 25 years after first winning at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Hashemiyeh Motaghian Moavi set an example for women in Iran by claiming gold and breaking the world record in the women's javelin throw - F56. She finished fourth in Rio 2016. Dame Sarah Storey became Britain's most decorated Paralympian by winning her 17th gold medal. 

Several athletes put their nation on the podium for the first time. Tigist Gezahagn Mengistu won the women's 1,500m T13 for Ethiopia. Dinesh Priyantha Herath Mudiyanselage won Sri Lanka's first Paralympic title in the men's javelin F46. Avani Lekhara made history as the first Paralympic champion in shooting for India. UAE's Abdulla Sultan Alaryani celebrated the country's first gold in the R7 - men’s 50m rifle 3 positions SH1. Pakistan's Haider Ali won the men's discus F37 and puts his nation on the podium for the first time. These are just a few to mention. Another great story is in the men's sitting down volleyball where Iran and Bosnia & Herzegovina have shared the final for 21 years, but not on this occasion. Iran defeated their old foes in the semi-final match. Moving on to other events, Switzerland's Nino Schurter established himself as the undeniable history-maker in the UCI Mountain Bike World Championship claiming his 9th Men Elite title. Ethiopia’s Yalemzerf Yehualaw took 18 seconds off the women's world half marathon record, running a remarkable 1:03:44 at the Antrim Coast Half Marathon.

USA retained both the men's and women's FIBA 3x3 U18 Basketball World Cup titles. Russia beat Japan 5-2 in the final of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. In floorball, the Czech Republic took their consecutive Men's U19 World Championship title beating Finland 4-3 in the final. Finally, Australia's Caroline Buchanan made history by landing the first-ever mountain bike women's front flip. The 30-year-old has previously won 16 national championships and eight world championships on BMX and mountain bikes.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
