New Zealand's multiple world championship winning woodchopper Jason Wynyard finished runner-up to long-standing Australian rival Brad De Losa in the final of the Timbersports Championship Trophy in Budapest, Hungary last weekend.

The Te Awamutu-born Wynard, one of eight elite woodchoppers invited to contest the event at Buda Castle, beat Martin Komarek of the Czech Republic to advance to the decider where he was narrowly beaten by the reigning world champion.

A new format saw the athletes tackle four disciplines - the chain saw, underhand chop, cross-cut and standing block - without a break.

"It's disappointing, a lot of hard training went into the preparation for here. It'a always disappointing when you don't get the result you were looking for but it was a good performance by Brad," Wynyard said.
