The Weekly Sports Review

16th to 22nd May

Sitting between Näsijärvi Lake and Pyhäjärvi Lake, with the Tammerkoski rapids in between, Tampere is a city in southern Finland that will for the next two weeks be the focal point for all ice hockey fans. The 2022 IIHF Men's Ice Hockey World Championship opened last night with four matches, with the final scheduled for Sunday, 29 May. With a clear home advantage and being the top-ranked side, Finland stand a great chance to lift the coveted trophy. Canada, on the other hand, are the defending champions who defeated Finland 3-2 in overtime in 2021. This is the top prize in ice hockey, but elsewhere other World Championships are also taking place. Recently Slovenia's men won Division I, Group A, beating South Korea 4-1 in Ljubljana. Over to athletics and specifically the Diamond League, the prestigious world circuit attracting the best athletes, that opened the new season in Doha last night. South Korean high jumper Sanghyeok Woo, US sprinter Gabrielle Thomas, and US javelin expert Anderson Peters were the standout performers. There are fourteen separate tour dates to look out for with the final round in Zurich on 7-8 September. 

Last Saturday Salt Lake City completed the final AMA Supercross Championship race of the season. USA's Eli Tomac is the 450SX champion, fellow countryman Christian Craig claims the 250SX West, and Australia's Jett Lawrence taking the top honours in the 250SX East. As the tennis community is gearing up for the next Grand Slam in Paris, the recent ATP/WTA 1000 tournament completed in Madrid. Tunisia's Ons Jabeur earned her second career title and her first WTA 1000, while Spain's rising star Carlos Alcaraz made history to capture his second ATP Masters 1000 title. The next ATP/WTA 1000 tournament, the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, is current in progress in Rome. In squash Egypt’s Nouran Gohar and Ali Farag claimed the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in New York. This was all in preparation for the Professional Squash Association World Championships in Cairo that opened last night. Over to tennis and the Netherlands won their eighth International Tennis Federation World Team Cup men's title in Vilamoura, Spain.

The Netherlands won both the Draughts Men's and Women's Team World Championships. At the recent World Senior Snooker Championship held at the famous Crucible Theatre, Lee Walker came back from two down with three to play to oust Jimmy White 5-4 in the final. Switzerland's Daniela Ryf and Norway's Kristian Blummenfelt won the IRONMAN World Championships in St. George, Utah. Blummenfelt has also won the Olympic and World Triathlon titles. Triathlon history was made in Singapore when Great Britain's Alex Yee and Beth Potter claimed the first-ever esport triathlon World Championship titles. British stars continued to dominate at the 2022 World Triathlon Championship Series in Yokohama earlier today where Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee claimed gold respectively. Yee is also the British 10,000m Champion. 

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
