The first Swede to ever enter the Junior World Cup in Timbersports has won first place.

Taking the gold for his skill with chainsaws and axes, Ferry Svan, 21, made history as the first Swede to ever attend this event. Despite a sudden rainstorm which delayed the competition, Svan had no problems focusing on the completion and winning the event.


Winning runs in the family if not necessarily in timbersports; Ferry is the son of Gunde Svan, one of Sweden's biggest skiing champions ever. You can watch a video of Ferry in action here:
