Weekly Sports Preview

14th to 20th January

Melbourne is the location to be at over the next two weeks if you are a tennis enthusiast. The first Grand Slam is already upon us with the start of the Australian Open from Monday, 14th January until the 27th. News has also been circulating that this may be the last tournament for Andy Murray, one of the stars of world tennis. In Europe the winter season has been suffering somewhat with large amounts of snow causing some FIS World Cup events to be cancelled. There is more snow on the way, so expect more disruptions to the ski calendar. Apart from the twelve FIS World Cup events this week, we also have Bobsleigh, Skeleton, Luge, Marathon Ski, Ice Climbing, Snowboarding, Ski Mountaineering, Para Nordic, Para Alpine and Biathlon. This is also the first world cup tour event for the Ski Mountaineering 2019 season.   

In Cheerleading the first World Championship event for the season will be held for universities at the Walt Disney Resort from Friday to Sunday. We also have the first UCI World Tour event for the year with the Santos Tour Down Under from Tuesday to Sunday. This road cycling event is held in the Adelaide area. Staying with cycling and the next UCI Track Cycling World Cup will be held in New Zealand. World Archery moves to Nimes in France for a World Cup event over the weekend. In Showjumping the Dubai Showjumping Championship has been elevated to a World Cup status. In addition, a separate World Cup Showjumping event will also be held at Leipzig.

Events drawing to a close this week include the Dakar Rally held in Peru and the World Para Nordic Skiing World Cup in Ostersund.
