Weekly Sports Preview

4th to 10th February

Santa Fe in Argentina is the venue to start the FINA season with the first major event a bit later today (3rd). We then move to Rosario just a little bit further down the Paraná river a week later for the second Ultra Marathon Swimming event. With much of Europe and North America dealing with extreme cold weather, it looks to be warming up at least for Europe this week. It means that many of the events will go ahead. The United Arab Emirates is a popular host nation for several sporting championships each year, so it is fitting then to be the venue for the start of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Abu Dhabi will be the host city next Friday to Saturday. In Archery the next World Cup Tour event will be held at Las Vegas, which also includes and Indoor World Series Finals. This week we have two IAAF World Indoor Athletics Tours in Poland and Spain respectively. The World DanceSport Federation also start 2019 with their first World Championship in Antwerp, with the dance style as Standard. 

In World Fishing it is Langebaan on the west coast of South Africa hosting a number of World Cup events. Further events feature at Sodwana Bay and Pretoria. We remain in South Africa for the first Triathlon World Cup in the series to be hosted in the city of Cape Town next weekend. The Snow Sports season is full with six FIS World Cup events in various locations, Luge, Marathon Ski, Biathlon, Ice Climbing and three Para Ski events adding to the list. The Para Ski events fall under the Paralympic sports body and this also includes Para Taekwondo in Turkey on Tuesday and Wednesday. Rugby Union was one of the main events over the recent weekend with the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Australia, Six Nations and the Americas Rugby Championship. From next Friday to Sunday, we have the next round of rugby matches and this will also include the start of the Rugby Europe Championship. 

In Tennis over the recent weekend there were Davis Cup qualifiers and next weekend it's the turn of the Fed Cup. There are three ATP tournaments starting Monday as we slowly build up to the next Grand Slam event in Paris. Tournaments concluding this week are the Golf Croquet Championships in New Zealand and the Snowkite Masters World Championship in the L'Alpe d'Huez resort. 

Have a great sporting week!
