Canadian Stirling Hart has won the 2018 Timbersports Champions Trophy — considered the toughest of all woodchopping competitions, hosted in Marseille on Sunday.
Hart's time of 1 minute 3.40 seconds was enough to knock New Zealand's Jason Wynyard into second place, with Australia's Mitch Argent taking third.
Timbersports is an extreme sport with roots in Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
The competition has three axe disciplines and three sawing disciplines. Springboard, Underhand Chop and Standing Block Chop are the classic axe disciplines; Single Buck, Stock Saw and Hot Saw are the sawing disciplines.
