russia banned from major sports events for four years

On 9 December, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announced that Russia have been banned from competing in all major sporting events for the next four years. This means the country’s athletes might not be allowed to compete at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, or the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. WADA is an organisation that works to stop doping in sport. Doping is the illegal use of drugs to improve a person’s performance at a sporting event. It is cheating. Why has Russia been banned? In 2015, a WADA investigation found evidence that the Russian government was helping their athletes to dope. This led to Russia’s anti-doping agency, Rusada, being kicked out of WADA. The ban lasted for three years, until Rusada was allowed back in 2018. Rusada was only…

new zealand volcano unexpectedly erupts

At least six people have died after New Zealand’s White Island volcano erupted with little warning on 9 December. It is estimated that 47 people were on the island at the time of the eruption. As The Week Junior went to press, rescuers had helped 34 people leave, but eight people were still missing. White Island is home to the country’s most active volcano and is a popular tourist destination; regular ferry and aerial services connect it to the mainland. The eruption began at 2.11pm, a busy time when lots of people were visiting. Attempts to rescue people have been affected by clouds of ash and smoke, and the fear that the volcano could erupt again. On 3 December, a website that monitors White Island warned that the volcano could be about…

big sleep out supports homeless

On 7 December, more than 50,000 people around the world spent the night sleeping outside as part of The World’s Big Sleep Out. The event took place in more than 50 cities to raise money to tackle the problem of homelessness. The Big Sleep Out is organised by Josh Littlejohn who started it in Edinburgh four years ago. For the first event, around 250 people spent the night sleeping outside. Each year since then, Littlejohn has organised Big Sleep Outs in Scotland, but this is the first worldwide event. It is hoped that the event will raise around £38 million for homelessness charities, which house and help those in need. Littlejohn told the BBC it was his biggest achievement so far. It is thought that there are about 320,000 people in the…

14 December 1911 Amundsen wins race to the South Pole On 14 December 1911, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen became the first person to reach the South Pole, in Antarctica.

When Scott arrived, he realised he had been beaten. Scott and his four teammates died trying to get back to their base.…
