“I’ve worked hard on the Single Buck discipline and I’m really pleased with how I went today. It feels amazing to be announced as the Australian Women’s Champion!”. 2021 marks the fourth annual Australian Women’s Championship, brought forward this year to coincide with the Australian Trophy men’s competition after the 2020 women’s event was cancelled due to the pandemic.
STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Event Director Lee Gooch said the athletes put on a thrilling show for the thousands of spectators who turned out to witness one of the closest competitions in TIMBERSPORTS® history.
“We had an impressive turnout at St Kilda last year, which is why we decided to bring the event back to the beautiful beachside location, and the crowds didn’t disappoint,” Gooch said.
“We’re thrilled to have hosted the country’s best female athletes on the mainstage this year alongside the hotly anticipated Australian Trophy for men year. It’s fantastic to see the popularity for the Original Extreme Sport is growing globally amongst women, with eight countries now hosting a women’s competition. Renee is a great example of the strength, power and athleticism women bring to the sport.”
