Italy top medals table at ISSF Shotgun World Cup

This week in review

29th July to 4th August

Hello from Porthcawl in the south of Wales! It is also a carnival festival here and a great day for it in terms of weather. The main sporting attraction is the Powerboating One Aquacross tournament that started on Saturday and concludes today. For those who may not know, if MotoGP is the Formula One equivalent of motorcycle racing, then Aquacross is that equivalent for jet skiing. This is a growing sport with more venues being added each year and Great Britain hosting three events in 2019. Over to France where Egan Bernal is just a few hours away from making major history in the Tour de France. The Colombian will become the first of his nation to win the prestigious race. Not only that, at the age of 22, Bernal will also become the youngest ever rider to win the Tour. The yellow jersey was in his possession at the end of the penultimate day and traditionally the final day in Paris is more of a procession than a contest. 

Some of the highlights this week include the two Games events that had the opening ceremonies on Friday, 26th July. Turin hosts the European Masters Games, while Lima hosts the Pan American Games. Another sport growing in popularity is Slacklining. It is similar to tight rope walking, but the differences are the type of material used and the tension applied during the use. The tension can be changed to suit the user. On Thursday to Sunday the Female Slackline World Championship will be hosted in Portugal. There is a full program this week and a complete listing is provided below. Until next time, have a great sporting week.
