Aussie Meyer wins timbersport world title

Australia Brayden Meyer has won the individual title at the Timbersport World Championships in Prague.

The tiny central Victorian town of Broadfoot boasts a new world champion after Brayden Meyer won the individual title at the Stihl Timbersports World Championships in Prague.

Meyer, 24, battled through six saw, axe and chainsaw disciplines, accumulating 75 points to triumph over opposition from 12 countries including Germany, Canada, USA and New Zealand on Saturday.

The win came four years after Meyer won the bronze medal and it followed countryman Laurence O'Toole's win last year.

"It's an unbelievable feeling; to win the world championship for the first time is my life goal," said Meyer.

The win came a day after the Australian side, the Chopperoos, won the team world title for a sixth time, winning the team relay across six disciplines from a field of 20 competing countries.
