Italy top medals table at ISSF Shotgun World Cup

This week in review

13th to 19th May 

We are back now from a short trip and while it appears Europe had a spell of cold weather having minor effects on some sport tournaments, elsewhere it was relatively good sunshine. Over the next two weeks as the men's cricket teams arrive in England for the Cricket World Cup later this month, we will be entertained by a number of friendly internationals or warm up matches as the ICC refer to these. England are also currently involved in a series against Pakistan. As a reminder, the first World Cup match is on the 30th May between the hosts and South Africa. A week earlier to that sees the first major FIFA tournament for 2019 to be hosted by Poland. The FIFA U20 World Cup starts on the 23rd May.

Looking ahead, there are 39 sports showcasing events this week. One of the big road cycling events started yesterday in Italy. The Giro d'Italia runs until the 2nd June and precedes the Tour de France, which is the biggest road cycling event on the UCI calendar. We also have the second Golf Major to feature this week. The USA PGA Championship starts on Thursday in Bethpage, New York. In tennis we are two weeks away from the French Open, which is the second Grand Slam of the year. Prior to that, there are still a number of clay court tournaments to conclude. 

See below for all the week's listings. Have a great sporting week!
