London, Dec 29 (EFE).- The holding of the Women’s Eurocup in July and the Commonwealth Games between July and August as well as the diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics will be the main sporting challenges for Britain this year going forward.
WOMEN’S EURO CUP 2022
The final phase of the Women’s European Cup will be played this year in England, starting on July 6, with the final scheduled at Wembley Stadium on July 31.
Spain are in Group B, along with Germany, Denmark and Finland, while England, Netherlands and France led the other three groups in the first round.
The British city of Birmingham will host the Commonwelath Games between July and August, a multi-sport event in which countries from the Anglo-sphere participate, similar to the Pan American and Mediterranean Games.
Queen Elizabeth II, head of the Commonwealth of Nations, looks forward to welcoming participants from 54 member states, including Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
BEIJING GAME BOYCOTT
Britain will support a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics, which will open in Beijing next February in protest at China’s human rights abuses.
The UK government will not send an official representative to the competition, although it will allow athletes to participate in the Olympics.
