The Weekly Sports Review

13th to 19th June

The changing face of sport

From the main sports headlines this week, the one standing out the most is the new LIV Golf, a rival to the PGA Tour. LIV is not an acronym, but rather a reference to the Roman numeral 54. It indicates the number of holes a tournament will be, and the score a golfer will have if they birdied every hole on a 72-par course. The finance comes from the Public Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. The organisers promise a greater experience for players and supporters alike. The controversy is that Saudi Arabia as a nation has a clear questionable human rights record. Whether many nations can point the finger, is equally up for debate. The last two years have meant that sport events will either go to the highest bidder, or hosted at the most affordable and logistically-friendly location. For many governing bodies it is survival, while for others it is about challenging the status quo. It is a business and new opportunities are constantly being researched, as several new sports were launched just in the last decade. What is certain is that LIV Golf will not be the last and serves as an example that if the financial backing is attractive enough, no sport is immune to a fundamental shake-up. 

Tennis made history on two fronts last weekend. Iga Świątek of Poland won her second Grand Slam at Roland Garros, and took her unbeaten run to 35 matches. There is still somewhat to go to match the 74 set by Martina Navratilova in 1984. Rafael Nadal claimed his 22nd Grand Slam, the most in history. In boxing America's Devin Haney became the first undisputed lightweight champion in 32 years. Haney defended his own WBC belt, while claiming Australian Kambosos' WBA (Super), IBF and WBO titles in Melbourne. This weekend the 24 Hours of Le Mans is already in progress, the biggest endurance motor race on the calendar. Last weekend Spa in Belgium hosted the motorcycling equivalent with the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team celebrating a maiden 24-hour EWC victory. 

Australia's Jason Belmonte celebrated his 30th career title and an historic Professional Bowling Association Tour final, making him the eighth player in PBA history to eclipse that threshold. In football Australia beat the United Arab Emirates 2-1 to set up a qualification match with Peru for a place in Qatar later this year. Belgium's Thibaut De Smet claimed the inaugural World Triathlon Cross Duathlon World Championship, a run-mountain bike-run format. Germany also made history by winning the first-ever Blind Football European Championship hosted in Pescara, Italy. The Gambia's Gina Bass won a close 100m race at the African Championships in Mauritius, becoming the first athlete from her nation to win a senior continental title. 

This coming week one of the standout events take us to Budapest where the best swimmers in the world gather for the 19th FINA World Championships. Until next time, have a great week in sport.
