Champions Trophy 2016 in Austria

Brayden Meyer wins Champions Trophy 2016
The 20 years old Australian Brayden Meyer wins the Champion's ring at the STIHL TIBERSPORTS® Champions Trophy on a mountain plateau in the Austrian Alps above St. Johann in Tyrol. With 1:03,21 minutes he set the top time of the day. In the final he had to compete against the seven times World Champion Jason Wynyard from New
Zealand. In the end a time of a bit more than one second made the difference – Meyer won. The Canadian Marcel Dupuis finshed with the third place. In the semi-final he prevailed against the best European athlete of the day Martin Komarek from the Czech Republic. Austrian Armin Kugler achieved with 1:20,71 the fifth place in front of the local audience of 1,300 people. At 1.700 metres altitude the athletes struggled with their breath and consistency; especially the Single buck was really exhausting and one of the key disciplines of the evening.
