Four-time Olympic gold medallist Simone Biles is set to make her return to competitive gymnastics at the 2023 US Classic in August. The 26-year-old, who has not competed since the delayed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo in 2021, took a break from the sport to work on her mental health.

The American withdrew from five of her six finals in Tokyo over mental health and safety concerns. It is not yet known if she will compete at next year's Olympics in Paris.

Jamaica Rugby Sevens male team came out with a silver medal at the Central America and Caribbean Games in El Salvador, after a 28-7 defeat by Colombia in the final.

This was the second medal for the team, which is otherwise known as the ‘Crocs’, in the championships - Ashley McKenzie won silver in the men’s Judo competition. The Colombians did, however, outplay the Jamaicans in the final quarter to win the match quite comfortably.

University of Gloucestershire is collaborating with Basketball England to conduct the first research of its kind investigating injuries sustained by basketball players, with the aim of making the sport safer. 

Despite being the second-most played team sport in England, behind only football, with more than 230,000 people aged over 16 playing basketball at least twice a month, little is still known about the types of injuries that occur in basketball games and training sessions. But the limited evidence suggests the injury risk in basketball could be as high as it is in rugby. 

Men’s 400m world record holder Wayde van Niekerk (RSA) will return to the London Stadium for the first time since his world title triumph in 2017 to compete at the London Athletics Meet on Sunday 23 July.

The South African claimed world gold at the London 2017 World Athletics Championships to retain the title he won in 2015. He also won 200m silver at those Championships, so he has a history of producing his best performances in London.

In 2016 the South African rewrote the history books of the one-lap event when he set an astonishing world record of 43.03 to win the Olympic gold medal, taking Michael Johnson’s long-standing record.

Holders, the United States, will again be the team to beat as the FIFA Women’s World Cup kicks off in Australia and New Zealand later this month, as Euros champions, England, will be another of the favourites to lift the coveted trophy. And, Africa's most successful national side, Nigeria will also be ones to watch as the global celebration draws ever closer.

Won by four different national teams, the USA already hold claim 4 times, whilst Germany have won it twice, with Norway and Japan winning it once each.

Auchterarder Golf Club’s Rory Franssen proved his readiness to take on some of the world’s best after a five-under par round of 66 at Close House saw him secure qualification in the no.1 position for The International Series England.

Franssen will now compete alongside the likes of Ryder Cup heroes Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter when the main event returns to the North East between August 17-20th, and will be hoping for a repeat performance with a US$2m prize purse to play for.
