Sports held in 2023

1. Rugby Union World Cup:

                                                                      All eyes will be set on Antoine Dupont to lead France to the Rugby Union World Cup, where 20 countries will compete across nine venues.

    The Rugby Union World Cup will be held in France from September 8 to October 28, 2023. On this occasion, the game will begin with a thrilling match between France and New Zealand, while the defending titleholders Ireland vs. South Africa, Australia vs. Wales, Fiji vs. Georgia will face each other on the same field. Still, England goes into the event after sacking trainer Eddie Jones in favor of Steve Borthwick.


2. World Athletics Championships:

                                                             The World Athletics will be the third major global event in 2023, taking place in Budapest from August 19 to 27.

    Armand Duplants and Sydney McLaughlin-Leveron, who won world records in Hungary last year, will be back to defend their titles. The biennial event will bring track and field stars to the field a year after the world championships in Eugene, Oregon, were postponed due to the global pandemic. In the women’s sprint, all eyes will be on Jamaican five-time 100m champion Shelley Ann Fraser-Pryce, 36.




    The United States of America will target men’s short track athletes Fred Curley, Noah Lyles, Michael Norman, and Irion Knighton, while Norway's Jacob Ingbrigtsen and Karsten Warholm will set the tone.
3. World Swimming Championships:

                                                                                     The World Swimming Championships, which will be hosted in Japan from July 14 to 30, will be the fourth global event in 2023.


    While other sports were impacted by the worldwide Corona epidemic, swimming competitions were halted, and Japan will now host the second of three world championships in 19 months. The World Championships were supposed to take place in 2021, but they were postponed along with the Tokyo Olympics. According to Fukuoka, the concept is “water meets the future,” and it is expected to meet the expectations of all future participants, with major swimming events likely to take place in 2023, with a focus on the 2024 Olympics.

       In this regard, David Popovici of Romania, Molly O’Callaghan of Australia, Summer McIntosh of Canada, Benedetta Pilato of Italy, and America’s Tory Huske will arrive in Japan to defend their world titles won as teenagers in June last year.
