Strong athletes, powerful saws, sharp axes and an enthusiastic crowd: The 2014 STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® World Championship served up a number of exciting highlights. After a rousing World Championship in Stuttgart in 2013, this year’s competition returned with thrilling contests and beaming winners.
Jason Wynyard from New Zealand locked up a well-deserved gold medal in the individual after a nerve-wracking finale, leaving Martin Komarek (CZ) and Brad Delosa (AUS) to pick up the silver and the bronze.
A great crowd was on hand to watch the final round of the team competitions and cheered on as the team from Australia came out on top.
The results of the individual disciplines − STIHL Stock Saw, Hot Saw, Springboard, Standing Block Chop, Underhand Chop and Single Buck − are available on the official STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® website.
At the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® SERIES competitions, athletes have to prove their skills in six disciplines. Strength, endurance and the perfect handling of the axe and chainsaw make the difference between victory and defeat.
