It's actually the World Cup, as is the cricket competition. I guess what you meant was that each sport/pastime had a contest which claimed to be global by including the word "world" in its title, though I'm still trying to figure out how, exactly, this holds for car racing. Formula 1, maybe? And you could have thrown in rugby as well - both disciplines also have their own World Cups. I'm not complaining too vehemently here - just think the question was a bit fuzzy.
