On this year’s United Nations’ World Environment Day, International Sports Federations (IFs) demonstrated their commitment to protecting biodiversity and promoting awareness for pressing environmental issues. The focus of this year’s day was the celebration of biodiversity, which is vital for our planet’s ecosystems, and many IFs took the opportunity to illustrate their ongoing work in furthering sustainable sport. “Sport has an unparalleled platform to raise awareness amongst a vast community, so it is only right that sport honours World Environment Day,” GAISF President Raffaele Chiulli said. “To see the tremendous progress our Members have made towards sustainable sport makes me immensely proud, and I know that, united, we can make a lasting and positive impact on protecting our planet’s biodiversity.” https://gaisf.sport/international-sports-federations-celebrate-biodiversity-on-world-environment-day/

73 youth U19 players from 11 countries were competing during 4 days of thrilling competition in Austria Bischofshofen, Austria – The 2016 WMF Minigolf Youth World Championships, one of the main worldwide minigolf events of the year, were played from August 10th through August 13th. Eleven countries were represented as 73 under-19 youth competed for both team and individual titles over the four days. Two major stories heading into the tournament were if weather would impact play and if the Germans would continue to dominate the youth categories as they did earlier in the U23 Nations Cup. Rain caused many interruptions during the first two days of the tournament and schedules had to be moved around so that players could continue under the tarp-covered miniaturegolf course instead of the concrete course. However, all eight rounds were completed as scheduled and at the end, Germany emerged on top of both the male and female youth categories. In the male youth category, Germany showed dominance over them all, easily finishing atop Sweden for first place, even though two Swedish players were the only males to post 19s in the first 8 rounds. Sweden just as easily kept silver over the Czech Republic […]

The Federation Internationale de Savate holds World Championships in three disciplines: Savate Assaut, Savate Combat and Canne de Combat. This year, the World Savate Combat Championships are being held for Seniors (over 21 years) and Juniors (18 to 21 years). The qualifying tournament of the World Combat Championships took place at the “Vendespace” sports centre, Mouilleron Le Captif, La Roche sur Yon, France from 4th to 7th June. Combat is a tough discipline, suitable only for elite athletes, and requiring the highest level of skill and fitness. This means that the finals are held later in the year, giving the athletes time to recuperate from the qualifying tournament. This year, 40 senior women, 61 senior men and 36 junior men participated. Elimination bouts take place according to a pool system, followed by quarter and semi-finals, to select the top two athletes in each category. The weigh-in was held on Thursday afternoon, with bouts on Friday and Saturday. After 200 bouts, athletes from 13 different countries had qualified for the finals. The Senior Men’s finals will be held in France on 3rd October. The Women’s and Junior Men’s Finals will take place in France, Martinique, Russia and Romania in November and December.

Today at the IFA 2016 Fistball U18 World Championships Germany the first games were played. With India and USA two countries made the first time an appearance at an U18 World Championship. But before the games could start the organisational committee and the IFA had to solve an unusual situation about the Indian Teams: The International Fistball Association has learned in the past month that there are two fistball federations in India. The older federation is called “Faustball Federation of India”, which over the years caught attention with confirming their participation in several international events and cancelling in the last days before the competition. Furthermore, missing membership fees almost led to the elimination of the federation. Considering those short time cancellations, a new rival federation was formed in India in spring 2016. This federation was officially registered as “Fistball Federation of India” nationwide. The newly established federation took all necessary steps in time to participate in the IFA 2016 Fistball U18 World Championships. Therefore, the participation of this federation was confirmed by IFA. The other, almost eliminated, federation (founded in 2003) organised their trip to Nuremberg in a last-minute move and arrived in Germany on Monday this week, against all expectations from […]
