This weekend competitors from 21 nations headed to Liverpool to compete at six thrilling wood chopping disciplines, three using an axe and three using saws. Friday’s event saw 21 nations compete in the Team Relay Event, with the Australian team walking away winners. On Saturday the 12 top athletes took to the stage for the individual event, with the coveted individual title taken home by Laurence O’Toole of Team Australia. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, a headline sponsor of STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® since 2015, will lend its support until 2020, providing a pair of Amaroks, a Crafter and a fleet of Caravelles to support the event, dubbed the original extreme sport.
