    After four years of weekly shows it’s time to close the curtain and retire the WiSP News Desk, the show that has brought you the top stories from around the world fo women’s sports. And it’s been a fun ride watching different sports grow and champions made. On this final episode we begin with a true champion of her sport counting 19 times as the LPGA Champion, New Zealander, Lydia Ko wins the final title of the season and $2 million check at the CME Tour Championship. In Alpine Skiing, the World Cup got underway in Levi, Finland and American Mikaela Shiffrin came out the gate as she means to continue with back to back wins in the two slalom races ahead of Anna Svenn Larsson (SWE) and Petra Vlhova (SVK) on day one and beating Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener and Petra again on the second day. The Lionesses were held to a 1-1 draw against Norway in the last of their friendly games of the year. And in the WSL, Manchester United ended Arsenal’s winning streak by beating them 3-2, thanks to a last minute goal by Alessia Russo.  The Rugby League World Cup came to a conclusion with an exciting win again for Australia against New Zealand. Exciting news in motor racing as Formula One launches a women’s academy.  British Darts star Fallon Sherrock gets a place in the 2023 World Championships. And in Nordic Combined Skiing women protest in a very visual way at being denied Olympic entry when they already have a World Cup season and World Championship.
