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

The Weekly Sports Review

15th to 21st November

The National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing was born in December 1947 with the first official race in February 1948. The NASCAR Cup Series only features in the United States and has a tremendous following. The season starts in February and features almost every weekend on a national tour. What makes it so special, are the play-off sections of the season. This determines the final 16, then the final 8, and finally the four drivers to contest the championship. Last Sunday, Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. lined up at the Martinsville Speedway. After taking several races during the playoffs, it was no surprise to see Kyle Larson claim the Championship 4 and lift the huge trophy at the end. Staying with Motor Racing where the FIA World Endurance Championship concluded the season with the 8 Hours of Bahrain. Toyota Racing's Mike Conway, Kamui Kobayashi and Jose Maria Lopez have clinched the 2021 Hypercar title. Moving over to Boxing where Belgrade hosted the Amateur World Boxing Championships. On this occasion Japan advanced to the final in two categories and also won gold for the first time ever. In Beach Soccer, Russia won their historic fourth Intercontinental Cup that was hosted in Dubai this year. They have now won the tournament four out of ten occasions. Russian athletes continued their success over the previous week by claiming the Billie Jean King Cup against Switzerland in Prague. This is also their fifth time of winning the prestigious tennis tournament.

We mentioned the inaugural FINA Challengers' Cup in the previous review. The competition helps nations to the international stage in water polo. It was held in Colombia with the hosts dominating both men's and women's finals. Quarteira in Portugal hosted the World Triathlon Junior Championships. Germany's Jule Behrens and Spain's Igor Bellido were crowned the champions. Over in Aviles, Spain, Joselyn Daniely Brea Abreu and Nathan Guerbeur claimed the World Triathlon Duathlon World Championships. World records continue to tumble in road running and this time it was Ethiopia's Dawit Seyaum who took four seconds off the 5km time in Lille. In the Badminton World Tour, Loh Kean Yew became the first Singaporean to win a Superseries Title. Kenya's Peres Jepchirchir and Albert Korir claimed the New York City Marathon, a World Athletics Elite Platinum Label road race last Sunday. Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez made history last weekend in the Formula One's Mexico City Grand Prix. Verstappen came the first 3-time winner in Mexico, while team mate Perez became the first Mexican to claim a podium at home. Peri Roberts and James Carew are the Global Kitesports Association 2021 Kite-Surf World Champions. In Chess Alireza Firouzja and Lei Tingjie are the 2021 FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss and the inaugural Women's Grand Swiss champions. 

In the FIM Motocross World Championship, the title went down to the wire in Mantova with three riders in contention. The 2021 champion is the Netherland's Jeffrey Herlings who went into the final race third on the overall standings. In Archery, Colombia's Sara Lopez has broken the record for the most consecutive days as world number one. The number is 1,196 days. The ICC Men's T20 World Cup has nearly reached the climax with Australia and New Zealand contesting the final in Dubai on Sunday. Finally, Frenchman Rémi Ouvrard broke the world record for standing on a hot-air balloon at altitude. The height was 3,637 metres.
