Brayden Meyer wins 2019 STIHL TIMBERSPORTS World Championship - Highlights Package

Donning the green and gold guernsey, the 24-year-old from Broadford powered through six saw, axe and chainsaw disciplines, accumulating 75 points to triumph over fierce competition from 12 competing countries, including Germany, Canada, USA and Australia’s biggest rivals, New Zealand.

Meyer had a near-perfect day, placing first and taking maximum points in the Underhand Chop, Stocksaw, Standing Block Chop and Springboard disciplines, and placing second even in his least favourite discipline, the Single Buck.

As Meyer entered the stage for the final heat of the night in the Hotsaw, he was tied for first place with Cassidy Sheer from the USA, but knew three complete cookies on the ground would be enough to claim a minimum of six points and the world title.

The winning moment was a sight for saw eyes for the Australian fans who travelled to the Czech Republic to support Meyer when, following his Hotsaw cutting out on the first cookie, Meyer stayed calm under pressure and re-started his saw successfully to complete his cuts within the allowed 60 seconds.

This is Meyer’s first Individual World Championship win, after taking home the bronze when he was just 20-years-old in 2015, and follows his Chopperoos teammate Laurence O’Toole’s win at last year’s World Championships.

STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® World Champion Brayden Meyer said: “It’s an unbelievable feeling, to win the World Championship for the first time is my life goal.”

“I knew I only needed to make a safe cut in the Hotsaw, but that’s not something we usually train for or the saws are built to do - they like going fast! I managed to stay calm when it cut out, get it going again and thankfully managed to come away with the win,” Meyer continued.

World Championship // Liverpool (UK) 2018 // STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Individual Competition

The 2018 Individual World Champion of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series has been crowned: Laurence O'Toole has conquered the world of logger sports for the first time. In a world-class competition in the Echo Arena in Liverpool, the 36-year-old dethroned defending champion Jason Wynyard in front of an enthusiastic crowd of over 3,500 spectators, making O'Toole the best logger sports athlete in the world. In the thrilling finale, Matt Cogar from the USA came in second and Martin Komarek from the Czech Republic finished third.

This marks the first time that Liverpool hosted the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® World Championship. The best logger sports athletes in the world put on a breathtaking show for more than 3,500 spectators in the Echo Arena. At the end of the electrifying extreme sport competition, Laurence O'Toole secured his first World Championship title and relegated Matt Cogar of the USA and Martin Komarek of the Czech Republic to second and third place. The Australian champion began with a time of 15.20 seconds in the Underhand Chop, a strong performance that put him among the leaders early on. He delivered the best time of the day in the Single Buck discipline at 11.75 seconds, grabbing the lead for the first time. He then extended his lead over the other competitors with an outstanding time of 39.44 seconds in the Springboard – another best time of the night. In the grand finale in the Hot Saw, the man from Down Under left no doubt in the end. I got off to a good start in the Underhand Chop, but then I didn't perform well in the Stock Saw. After that it was difficult work, but bringing the championship home is fantastic. In particular I want to thank my family and friends who came here with me, as well as my team, who supported me throughout the whole week, said O'Toole.

Matt Cogar sets a new world record and takes home silver
American Matt Cogar, who failed to beat the new World Champion despite his great performance, delivered the highlight of the evening. Cogar began the competition with the best time of the day in the Underhand Chop (14.39 seconds), only to outdo himself in the Standing Block Chop: with a time of 11.03 seconds, he topped Jason Wynyard's 2007 world record by more than a second. Ultimately, a wayward cut in the Stock Saw cost him valuable points in the fight for the title. Despite missing out on the World Championship, Cogar was ecstatic with his performance: I'm happy I made it onto the podium – second place is great. Congratulations to the new World Champion and the awesome crowd in Liverpool.

Martin Komarek completes the podium as the best European
Martin Komarek from the Czech Republic came in third place and was the top ranking European athlete. Along the way, Komarek got off to a bad start in the competition but, with strong performances in the Stock Saw, Single Buck and Springboard, he managed to fight back into contention. After the fourth-best time in the grand finale in the Hot Saw, third place was his, right behind Matt Cogar. I'm just thrilled. I prepared hard, and that's why I'm happy that I made it – everything is just perfect, said Martin Komarek after the competition.

Robert Ebner and Nathan Cumberland narrowly miss podium finishes
Fourth place was taken by Robert Ebner of Germany. His outstanding 5.51 seconds in the Hot Saw set the day's best time and also moved him past nine-time World Champion Jason Wynyard from New Zealand in the overall standings. The logger sports legend never seemed to find his rhythm. He ultimately came in fifth place, just in front of former Rookie World Champion Nathan Cumberland from Canada.
