Italy top medals table at ISSF Shotgun World Cup

This week in review

1st to 7th April

Clocks have gone forward for Europe and this means summer is technically here. Although most of western Europe has experienced a great week of mild weather, we all know April and May can still produce very cold snaps. We do however, say goodbye to many snow sports for a well-deserved rest after a very successful season and amazing results. For some it will only be a short few months before a summer event on their calendar appears. These sports include Biathlon and Ski Jumping for example. In addition, as the southern hemisphere inches closer to their winter season, New Zealand in particular offer Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Cup events on the FIS calendar. Summer brings the emergence of many more outdoor events that we do not normally get to hear much of. As we mentioned before, we treat each sport equally and promote their events in the the same manner on our social media platforms. It is great to see such a huge variety on offer. 

Some of the bigger events to look out for later this year include the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup starting in just under two months in England. This is a 50-over format of the game in case you may have been wondering with so many competitions in cricket. May sees the start of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland and three weeks later the FIFA Women's World Cup in France. These are the two premier events on the international football calendar for 2019. As summer is approaching in the northern hemisphere, it also means the UCI road cycling tour has upped the tempo with several events now each week. Two of the biggest to look out for are the Giro d'Italia in early May and the Tour de France near the end of June. May is also the month for the next golf major. The US PGA Championship starts on the 16th, while in tennis The French Open near the end of the month is the next Grand Slam event. 

We have 38 sports showcasing premier tournaments this week. We hope your favourite sport has been listed below. Do feel free to provide feedback on how we can improve this review. Have a great week!
