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

The weekly sports review

 13th to 19th September

It will have been difficult for the current hype surrounding the US Open Grand Slam tournament to have gone unnoticed by many, especially relating to the women's matches. The final will be contested today between Britain's Emma Raducanu and Canada's Leylah Fernandez, both still in their teens and both making their Grand Slam final debut. To separate the two and predicting the winner is nearly impossible to make, as neither player set Wimbledon alight earlier this year. If rankings are to go by, then the pendulum swings to Fernandez, but this is a final where form and confidence matter. For the men, world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia is set to meet Russia's Daniil Medvedev. Both players are no strangers to major finals. For Djokovic it has special significance as the US Open is the final piece of the puzzle in winning all four Grand Slams within the same calendar year. Moving over to Floorball, Finland are the Women's U19 World Champions as they overcame Sweden 5-4 in Uppsala last Sunday. It is also the second time Finland has won gold in the U19 age level. As the UCI WorldTour is nearing the end for 2021 before the Road World Championships in Flanders, Slovenia's Primož Roglič claimed La Vuelta last Sunday. The tour is viewed as one of the major events, together with Giro d'Italia and Tour de France. 

Staying with cycling where Graz hosted the UCI Mountain Bike Eliminator World Championships. Germany's Simon Gegenheimer and Italy's Gaia Tormena are the champions for 2021. For Gegenheimer it was his debut title, while Tormena also won in 2019. Further cycling news is that Spain completely dominated the 2021 UCI Trials World Championships held in Vic, Catalonia. Serbia clinched their third Men's Junior Water Polo World Championship crown that was recently held in Prague. In Golf, Denmark's Nicolai Højgaard created history by winning his maiden European title in Italy last Sunday, a week after his twin brother Rasmus won in Switzerland at the European Masters. Britain's Reanne Evans claimed an incredible tenth UK Women's Snooker Championship in Leeds. Montemor-o-Velho in Portugal hosted the ICF Junior and U23 Canoe Sprint World Championships where Hungary dominated. Zurich also hosted the Wanda Diamond League Finals during the week where 25 champions and 41 other medalists convened at the prestigious event. Finally, for most of us performing the plank exercise routine, the length of time holding out would be down to minutes. Not for Australia's Daniel Scali, who performed an astonishing world record time 9 hours 30 minutes, and 1 second. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
