In 2020, the much-anticipated sporting events came to a complete halt due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This year, however, sports officials and organisations, and countries have found a way to bring your favourite sports back – albeit with a few changes. To keep you updated and in tune with the world of sports, here is your 2021 sports events calendar.
- Australian Open, 8th-21st February
The year started with the much-awaited third Grand Slam in Melbourne. Although the tournament began three weeks later than it usually does, it didn’t rob fans of their joy of living in the moment of this exciting tournament. The tournament ended with compelling results, such as Novak Djokovic winning the Men’s Singles after beating Dani Medvedev and Noami Osaka being the Women’s singles Champion.
- Six Nations, 6 February- 20th March
After 14-weeks of waiting, the Six Nations Championship brought about the thrill and excitement many spectators and players had been yearning. Wales was declared the champions of this year’s tournament, making this their 28th title.
- Formula One World Championship, 21st March- 5 December
Lewis Hamilton sprinkled his magic all over the Bahrain International Circuit track during the Bahrain GP, earning him a total of 25 points. The rest of the Grand Prix is one you should follow as this year’s championship looks to be one you cannot afford to miss.
