The weekly Sports Review

20th to 26th June

Man v Horse Race

Last Saturday Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales hosted the grueling Man v Horse race. First started in 1980 and not a complete marathon at 22.5 miles, trail runner Ricky Lightfoot became only the third person in history to claim victory. What made it such a standout achievement, is that Lightfoot had not slept for 29 hours before starting the race at 11am. Lightfoot traveled from the Canary Islands the day before, having woken up at 6am to later take a midnight flight to Manchester. From there he traveled to Wales to be in time for the start. Horses take a slightly different route at times, which meant that the victor did not know he had won after crossing the finish line. The first time the race was won by a person was in 2004 by Huw Lobb, followed by Florian Holzinger only three years later. There are three other nations also with similar races. These are Dores in Scotland, the North Island of New Zealand, and Prescott in Arizona, USA. 

Last week we wrote about the LIV Golf Invitational, the first event of the new LIV Golf series. South Africa's Charl Schwartzel was the champion held at the Centurion Club in Hertfordshire. Toyota have stamped their authority on the 24 Hours of Le Mans after winning their fifth consecutive victory and a third ever 1-2 finish at the world’s greatest endurance race. The Porsche GT Team claimed the LMGTE Pro success. Leeds hosted the next round of the World Triathlon Championship Series with France's Cassandre Beaugrand making an impactful comeback to claim victory, while New Zealand's Hayden Wilde won gold in the men's race. Germany were the strongest in the Mixed Relay Team race. The United States won their sixth consecutive FIBA Americas U18 Championship after demolishing Brazil by 102-60. The basketball tournament was held in Tijuana, Mexico.

In the final qualification rounds for FIFA's global showpiece later this year in Qatar, Australia overcame Peru on penalties to book their place. The standout feature of the match must go to Awer Mabil, the former Sudanese refugee who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya after his parents fled conflict in Sudan. Mabil and his family settled in Australia in 2006. After scoring the sixth penalty for Australia, Mabil watched as Peru's next attempt was saved, leading him to be part of one of the biggest sporting events in the world. In the other qualification match, Costa Rica beat New Zealand 1-0. Michael van Gerwen beat Joe Cullen 11-10 to win a record-equaling sixth Premier League Darts title at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin. Further news in golf is that Sweden's Lin Grant became the first female winner of the DP World Tour at the Scandinavian Mixed. Grant, who only turned professional late last year, came into the tournament ranked as the women's world 156.

The Curtis Cup is the best known team trophy for women amateur golfers and this year the United States beat Great Britain & Ireland for the third consecutive time. In athletics American Devon Allen produced the third quickest 110m hurdles time in history at the New York Grand Prix on Sunday. Allen's time was 12.84 seconds, which will serve him well at his new home with the Philadelphia Eagles where he will be based for the next three years. Canada beat the United States 3-2 in the final of the Women's U18 Ice Hockey World Championship hosted by Madison, Wisconsin. France are the new European Blind Football Champions after their victory against Turkey in the final. Finally, England have set a new one-day international record after reaching a total of 498 runs in their innings. The record was set in Amstelveen in their match against the Netherlands.

Until next time, have a great week in sport.
