It was a big weekend for champion timber sports competitor, Lithgow's Brad De Losa, who captained his team to another World Championship title.
The Australian Chopperoos made history in Prague on November 2, beating traditional rivals New Zealand in a thrilling final.
"It was pretty hard in the early rounds, but we dug deep and came out on top in the final," de Losa said following the win.
"We just wanted to get the win, all the boys were hungry. It's a great team, we've got a really good passion to win - it's a great rivalry with New Zealand and it's always a little bit sweeter to win against them."

It was the Aussie team's sixth Stihl Timbersports World Championship in eight years, and thrilled the Aussie fans who travelled to the Czech Republic or watched via live streams online.
It was the Chopperoos' second world titles in a row after taking home gold in Liverpool last year.
Australia came out on top of 20 competing countries, including Canada, New Zealand, Poland and the US, in a team relay across four thrilling axe and saw disciplines.
In the early rounds against Belgium and Canada, the Chopperoos struggled to find their World Champion form of last year, with the team from New Zealand consistently posting faster times throughout the night.
However, the Chopperoos kicked into second gear during the semi-final matchup with Poland when they set the fastest relay time of the evening at just 48.50 seconds, securing a coveted spot in the top two.
In the final, Victorian Laurence O'Toole sawed exceptionally in the Stocksaw before fellow southlander Brayden Meyer opened up the lead in the underhand chop, giving five-time world title-winning captain De Losa a 2-second margin going into the single buck.
De Losa was chased down by New Zealand's Kahu Wooley, to leave Queenslander Mitch Argent in a showdown on the standing block chop with Shane Jordan for the world title.
Argent once again showed why he's the best standing block cutter in the world, finishing a full two seconds ahead of New Zealand and bringing the title back to Australia for the sixth time in eight years.
De Losa said there was always a great rivalry against New Zealand.
"This is our sixth title and it never gets old, winning the championships."
