BROADFORD woodchopper Brayden Meyer will compete for another title this weekend when he contests the STIHL Timbersports Australian Trophy Championship.

Meyer won the inaugural Australian Championship in 2015 when he was 19 years old, and will look to secure the title again at Glenelg Beach in Adelaide on Saturday.

Meyer’s success has also been seen abroad, representing Australia in the individual competition at the STIHL Timbersports 2015 World Championship in Poland, where he placed third.

In 2016, he was named the champion of champions in Austria to become the youngest ever Timbersports world title holder, and reclaimed gold in 2019, where he was again crowned individual world champion in Prague, Czech Republic.

At the event this weekend, Meyer will compete against 13 of the sport’s top Australian athletes, including three-time Australian Trophy winner Mitch Argent, who won the title last year.

Some of Meyer’s other biggest competition includes 2019 and 2020 Australian Trophy holder Laurence O’Toole and three-time world trophy winner Brad De Losa.

The Australian trophy qualification time trial will commence at 12pm Saturday, with a jam-packed agenda including the Australian Trophy at about 2pm.

A women’s championship is scheduled for 1pm.

People can stream the event live on Saturday on Facebook or YouTube.
