This Week in Olympic Sport: June 10-15

10 June 2014 / 11:25

If the first day of this week is anything to go by British athletes are set to shine over the next six; here is the best of what’s happening in Olympic sport up to June 15.

England’s men’s hockey team reached the semi-finals of the World Cup after a dramatic defeat of Belgium while on the same day James Davis won European fencing gold.

Both events continue with England’s men hoping to go all the way to Sunday and the medal matches while there’s double the action in athletics’ Diamond League scheduled.

Oslo is the first port of call before New York opens its doors with Adam Gemili and Richard Kilty on the entry list for the 100m in Norway and hurdler Tiffany Porter down for the latter.

After a successful weekend on home waters at Lee Valley where seven golds and a silver were won, Britain’s slalom canoeists head to the next leg of the World Cup in Tacen.

And as shooting’s World Cup in Munich ends another begins in Maribor while rhythmic gymnastics hosts its own European Championships in Baku in Azerbaijan.

There’s further World Cup action in archery, BMX and mountain biking while the European qualifiers for the 2015 Men’s World Handball Championships roll on.

The second round of the Women’s EuroBasket qualifiers continues with Britain set to face Macedonia and Lithuania after opening up with a win over Belgium last week.

And finally sailing’s Laser & Radial European Championships kick off in Split while the water polo’s Women’s World League Super Final takes place in China.
