The Weekly Sports Review

27th June to 3rd July

A week of upsets and records

The city of Budapest currently has the privilege of hosting many of the world's most gifted swimmers at FINA's showpiece event of the season. The 19th World Championship started on the 18th June and concludes next Sunday, 3rd July. Not counting events today, we have already seen three world and two championship records. The most recent was Australia claiming the Mixed 4x100 Freestyle Relay world record. Other world records came from Hungary's Kristof Milak in the Men's 200m Butterfly and Italy's Thomas Ceccon in the Men's 100m Backstroke. Championship records came from France's Leon Marchand in the Men's 400m Medley, which is also a European record, and USA in the Women's 4x200m Freestyle Relay. We still have more than a week of swimming, water polo, artistic swimming, and diving to come.

This weekend we have the final matches of the 2021-2022 FIH Pro Hockey League. It has been a fragmented season for obvious reasons. As a result of restrictions imposed by their countries, Australia and New Zealand could not travel and South Africa were invited to attend instead. Argentina's women and the Netherland's men have been crowned as champions. At the Tour de Suisse, a UCI WorldTour event, Welshman Geraint Thomas became the first Britain to win the multi-day cycling tour. England's Hollie Doyle became the first female jockey to win a French Classic with victory on Nashwa in the French Oaks at Chantilly. Croatia's men and Spain's women are the 2022 IHF Youth Beach Handball World Championship that was recently hosted by Heraklion in Crete. 

Two basketball regional championships concluded this week. Australia beat Japan 94-63 in Doha at the final of the FIBA U16 Asian Championship. Buenos Aires hosted the FIBA U18 Women's Americas Championship where the United States continues their dominance with a 10th straight win. Spain beat Singapore 11-6 to clinch the 2022 World Cup of Pool for the first time. Australia's Damon Heta and Simon Whitlock claimed the maiden World Cup of Darts at an historic night in Frankfurt. After round two of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, Romania's Catalín Preda leads the men's standings, while Canada's Molly Carlson and Australia's Rhiannan Iffland are tied on points on the women's standings. Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Price equaled her 2022 world's best time to win the 100m at the Diamond League Meeting in Paris.

Australia came back from a slow start to snatch victory at the United States Sail Grand Prix from Canada and Great Britain. Australia also lead the rankings on 20 points. Last Sunday England's Matt Fitzpatrick claimed the 2022 U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Castro Daire, Portugal, provided the stunning setting for the Valsir Mountain Running World Cup’s first Gold Label race of the year. It was a Kenyan double with Joyce Njeru and Patrick Kipngeno. In cricket, Sri Lanka claimed their first One-Day Series victory against Australia earlier in the week. For Mixed Martial Arts Bellator fans, USA's Johnny Eblen upset defending champion Gegard Mousasi to win the middleweight title with a superb performance in Connecticut.

We are just under two weeks away from the opening night of the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, Alabama. Until next time, have a great week in sport.
