The Weekly Sports Review

2nd to 8th May

England and France are both locked on 20 points at the top of the Women's Six Nations table. They have been the two most dominant teams in the competition over the last few seasons and today's final round brings these two champions together at Stade Jean Dauger in Bayonne. England are out to defend their Grand Slam and the Women’s Six Nations title for 2022, but it is France who may hold the aces playing in front of their passionate supporters. The previous week we mentioned the Liège-Bastogne-Liège, probably the most famous of the road cycling classics. Last Sunday we celebrated 130 years with Belgium's 22-year-old Remco Evenepoel winning the UCI WorldTour race in a time of 6:12:38 and earning himself 500 points. In the UCI Women's WorldTour race, the Netherland's 40-year-old Annemiek van Vleuten claimed the honours in a time of 3:52:32 and earning 400 points on the world rankings. Over to tennis and more specifically the current form of the Czech Republic's World No.1 Iga Swiatek, who won her fourth straight title at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart last Sunday. Unfortunately an injury has forced Swiatek out of the WTA/ATP 1000 - Mutua Madrid Open already in progress. 

Ethiopia’s 22-year-old Yalemzerf Yehualaw made history in Hamburg last Sunday, running 2:17:23 for the fastest ever women’s marathon debut. Yehualaw won the Haspa Marathon Hamburg by almost nine minutes, breaking the Ethiopian record and German all-comers’ record. In the men's race, only a second separated Kenya’s Cybrian Kotut to pip Uganda’s Stephen Kissa. In Dudince China’s Qieyang Shijie and Italy’s Massimo Stano claimed wins on their 35km race walk debuts. Long Beach hosted the second leg of sailing's World Match Racing Tour. The 57th Congressional Cup was won by Great Britain's Ian Williams and Team Gladstone. The tour next moves to Szczecin in Poland. In water polo, FINA are staging the European Qualifiers for the World League Super Final. While the men's event completes today in Podgorica, the women's event concluded earlier in the week with the Netherlands beating Spain 12-11 in the final, with third place going to surprise winners Greece over Germany. 

We are under two weeks away from the Men's Ice Hockey World Championships. In the meantime we continue with further divisional championships where Iceland are the new Men's Division II, Group B winners that was played in Reykjavik. The second edition of the World Triathlon Arena Games completed in London last weekend. Germany's Justus Nieschlag and France's Cassandre Beaugrand claimed the gold medals and moved to the top of the rankings. Bristol successfully hosted the World Bowls Indoor Championships. Early results have Stewart Anderson and Alison Merrien from Guernsey claiming the Mixed Doubles title, while Scotland's Mike Stepney and Julie Forrest are the new Singles Champions.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
