Italy top medals table at ISSF Shotgun World Cup

This week in review

12th to 18th August

We start our review today with MotoGP. Marc Marquez of the Repsol Honda Team is 63 points clear of the overall rider standings leading into the next race at the Redbull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, tomorrow. The defending champion has also claimed pole position for the race and looks unstoppable in his quest to claim the title this year. We are also just past the halfway stage of the championship. After 10 days of action and 69 matches in Durban, South Africa, The Netherlands have been crowned champions of the 2019 IKF Korfball World Championship. The final was played against Belgium with the score ending at 31-18. The gold medal for the Lacrosse Women's U19 World Championship 2019 will be played between Canada and the USA later today. Australia have claimed the bronze medal in an earlier match. Peterborough in Ontario has been hosting the tournament. Penrith in New South Wales has been the venue for the 2019 International Blind Sports Federation Goalball Youth World Championships. Thailand claimed the title for the boys, while the girl's title belongs to Brazil.  

South Africa have claimed the 2019 Rugby Championship title and were also unbeaten in the competition. This year the tournament has been shortened as the Rugby World Cup 2019 starts in Japan on the 20th September. Several teams will also be playing friendly matches in final preparations over the next two weekends as team coaches will decide on the final squad to be chosen. Japan has claimed the World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup 2019 and will look to be a strong team representing the host nation. In South Africa the host nation, Uganda, Kenya and Madagascar are currently playing in a tournament to determine the team to qualify for the Women's Rugby World Cup 2021. In cricket Australia have claimed the first test in The Ashes Series with former captain Steve Smith proving to be the difference between the two teams. The second test starts on Wednesday at the Lord's Cricket Ground. This week we have World Championships in Chess, Climbing, Fistball, Handball, Orienteering, Match Sailing, Grass Skiing, Masters Snooker, Outdoor Freediving, Underwater Hockey, Water Skiing, Weightlifting, Track Cycling, Mountain Biking, Fishing and Wrestling.
