Sharp Axes - Powerful Chain Saws – Professional Athletes

The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Series is Coming Back to Charlottetown!

The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Series announces the 2022 Canadian Championship & Canadian Trophy. You have seen it on TV, now come experience it LIVE!

 

His Worship, Charlottetown Mayor Philip Brown, and Events Development Officer, Wayne Long, are at the ready as the City prepares to host the 2022 STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Championship & Canadian Trophy.

 

The "Canada 150" celebration in 2017 was the perfect setting for the production of the second event in the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Series, the Canadian Trophy, where Stirling Hart from Vancouver, BC, took the championship in this "Master's Cup" of STIHL TIMBERSPORTS. For 2022, the "Original Extreme Sport" will be back to the "Birthplace of Confederation" to celebrate its two biggest competitions of the year, the Canadian Championship & Canadian Trophy, during Natal Day weekend, July 29 to 31, 2022.

 

The Canadian Championship features three divisions: Pro, Women and Rookie. These divisions will be featured during a 2-day event with the best athletes from east to west in Canada, who will battle for the title of Canadian Champion.

 

The Canadian Trophy is a 1-day event that will have the top Pro athletes from across the country competing in four disciplines (sawing or chopping exercise). Unlike the Canadian Championship where athletes compete in disciplines one at a time, the Canadian Trophy requires exceptional endurance as athletes must complete four disciplines back to back.

 

"Charlottetown continues to be a leader in sport tourism. We are thrilled to have been awarded the 2022 hosting rights that will see the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS®  Canadian Championship & Canadian Trophy integrated into the City's Natal Day celebrations where we commemorate the incorporation of this great city," said Charlottetown Mayor Philip Brown. "As if hosting both Championships in the Birthplace of Confederation wasn't exciting enough, the national exposure that will come from the event's broadcast on TSN is exposure we simply could not afford to buy".

 

"We are very excited to come back to.. We had an incredible experience in 2017 and we were just over the top when made the decision to return", said Jeff Loosemore, Marketing Manager of STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® in Canada. "Working with the City of Charlottetown is an absolute pleasure from every perspective: their production team is top notch, the facilities are second to none and the people of P.E.I. are just incredible. Charlottetown is recognized as a major player and top hosting destination in sport tourism in Canada and because of this, we just can't wait to come back to P.E.I.".

About the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series  The STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series consists of up to six disciplines, pending division and competition type, three using an axe – Springboard, Standing Block Chop and Underhand Chop – and three using a saw – Stock Saw, Single Buck and Hot Saw. Most of the disciplines have evolved from traditional forestry techniques and have been practiced for over 150 years. The keys to victory in STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® are a combination of an outstanding fitness level, perfect technical skills with the axe and saw, and a complete focused and mentally strong condition to withstand the enormous pressure of this competition.
