Donning the green and
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.
I'm laughing that he did the entire event with filler added to the video to pad it out in 3 mins and 15 seconds. Whereas i wouldn't be able to get through the first bit of timber in that time
Marge the Lumberjill brings me here!!
Australians normally chop hardwood, so to give the rest of the world a chance they use softwood, Brayden would beat the pants of them anyway, way to go Brayden from Tasmania, home of David Forster.
This is just too manly bro
What axe is that. Is it an Autine ?
