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

The Weekly Sports Review

8th to 14th November

This week FINA, the world governing body for aquatic sports, hosted the FINA Water Polo Challengers' Cup in Barranquilla, Colombia. The competition is specifically created to help launch nations to the water polo international stage. This is a great initiative and should be followed in every sport. Colombia have so far dominated the rankings for both men and women with the finals to be played on Sunday. Other nations competing are Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Kuwait and Thailand. Last Sunday in Beijing, the host nation were crowned gold medalists at the World Curling World Wheelchair Championship. Sweden were beaten 5-3 in the final, while the Russian Curling Federation claimed bronze. Antwerp hosted the IKF European Korfball Championship A tournament, with the host nation eventually succumbing to their neighbours the Netherlands. The final score was 21-17. Over to Aquathlon where El Anillo – Extremadura in Spain hosted the World Championships. Local star David Castro and Margot Garabedian of France where crowned the 2021 champions. At the same location, Loanne Duvoisin of Switzerland and Arthur Serrieres of France battled through the mud to earn the 2021 Cross Triathlon World Titles. 

The picturesque setting of Dakhla in Western Sahara, currently under the administration of Morocco, hosted the Global Kitesurfing Association Kite-Surf World Cup. This is an annual event and a favourite for kitesurfers. Airton Cozzolino from Italy and Capucine Delannoy of France claimed the titles. Verry Elleegant, the New Zealand mare ridden by James McDonald, won Australia's famous Melbourne Cup ahead of the favourite Incentive and Britain's Spanish Mission. In the Professional Squash Association World Tour, Peru's Diego Elias and Egypt's Nouran Gohar have been named PSA World Tour players for the month of October. Yesterday in Abu Dhabi at the World Triathlon Para Championships, Jetze Plat (NED, PTWC), Susana Rodriguez (ESP, PTVI) and Alexis Hanquinquant (FRA, PTS4) all finished the season in style, adding a World Title to their respective Paralympic golds. In rugby union, Canada Women sealed the inaugural World Rugby Pacific Four Series title after beating the hosts USA 26-13 at Infinity Park. The competition will feature New Zealand and Australia from 2022 and also forms part of the new WXV, a three-tier annual global women's international 15s competition launched by World Rugby that will act as a springboard to the expanded 16-team Rugby World Cup in 2025. 

NASCAR fans have been waiting a very long time for the Championship 4, the final race of the 2021 Cup Series. Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, Martin Truex Jr., and Denny Hamlin will contest the NASCAR Cup Series Championship at the Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, Arizona on Sunday, November 7.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
