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

The weekly sports review

27th September to 3rd October

Kenya is fast becoming one of the leading nations in Africa to host world sports events. They did not disappoint either when the World Athletics Continental Tour Gold held a meeting in Nairobi. The Kip Keino Classic lived up to expectations as USA's Trayvon Bromell blasted to a world-leading 9.76 in the men's 100m and local star Ferdinand Omanyala secured an African record of 9.77. Over to the picturesque setting of St. George in Utah who hosted the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. It was Norway's Gustav Iden and Great Britain's Lucy Charles-Barclay claiming the gold. FIVB, the governing body for volleyball, completed two further continental championships over the previous week. In Japan, Iran's men extended their reign in the Asian Championship as they beat the hosts 3-0 to claim their fourth title. In Rwanda, Cameroon's women beat Kenya 3-1 to claim their third title. At the World Skate Inline Hockey World Championships, the Czech Republic's men's team became the champions beating Canada in the final. France became the women's world champions as they beat a passionate and professional Spain in the beautiful village of Roccaraso, Italy. In Krakow, Turkey emphatically beat Spain 6-0 to claim the European Amputee Football Championship title.

This weekend is the last race of the NTT IndyCar Series and all indications are that Spain's Alex Palou will be crowned the champion. His nearest rival is Mexico's Pato O'Ward, but the points difference may just be too far. The 2021 NASCAR Cup Series completed the Round of 16 and now head to the Round of 12 in the playoffs. At the Davis Cup, Argentina, Japan, The Netherlands, Slovakia, Finland, Norway, Brazil, South Korea, Romania, Peru and Ukraine all advance to the next round of World Group 1. At the FIFA Futsal World Cup being held in Lithuania, the final eight are Russia, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Argentina, Brazil, Iran, Portugal and Spain, with matches to be played on Sunday and Monday. Golf and tennis fans are also eagerly watching the Ryder Cup and Laver Cup currently featuring in the States. Tomorrow is the final stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series with Rhiannan Iffland (AUS) and Gary Hunt (FRA) clear favourites to take the titles in Polignano a Mare, Italy. Tomorrow is also the conclusion of the UCI Road Cycling World Championships in Flanders, Belgium. Finally, New Zealand have won the 100th match between rivals South Africa in Townsville, Australia, and with that are crowned winners of the Rugby Championship. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
