Weekly Sports Preview

18th to 24th February

In the preview this week we have a record 36 sports showcasing their top tournaments of the season and with relatively good weather ahead, we anticipate all events to go ahead. As always in the early part of the year, Winter Sports dominate the listing below. Åre in Sweden brings the FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships to a close today, but we then move over to Seefeld in Austria for World Championships in Cross-Country, Nordic Combined and Jumping from Wednesday onward. Further World Cup events also feature for Bobsleigh, Skeleton, Luge, Ski Mountaineering, Snowkite and Marathon Ski. A special mention should go to the UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup Tour reaching the final round in Denver from Friday to Sunday. Following next weekend will be a Youth and Senior World Championships in Finland and Russia. 

Test cricket has over the last year been in the spotlight for those questioning the future of the format as T20 becomes more prominent. Yesterday Sri Lanka beat South Africa in Durban chasing a record second innings total. England have also lost the current test series against West Indies. These results are overall very good for the format and will hopefully grow the game worldwide. Two sports making their World Tour debut this week are Fistball and Bodyboarding. Club de Golf Chapultepec near Mexico City will be the location for the World Golf Championship from Thursday to Sunday. We also have the third road cycling tour on the UCI WorldTour start on Sunday in Abu Dhabi. Long Beach in California is the location for the World Rowing Indoor Championship on Sunday, while Fuzhou in China will host the Weightlifting World Cup starting on Friday. We return for another weekend of Six Nations, Americas Rugby Championship and Rugby Europe Championship matches. 

Tournaments drawing to a close this week include the Al Ain 2019 World Shooting Para Sport World Cup, the World Para Nordic Skiing Championships, the FIS Junior Telemark World Ski Championships and the 2019 IWWF World Cable Wakeboard & Wakeskate Championships.
