Curtis McGrath added another world championship gold medal to his collection in Račice, Czech Republic on Saturday, finishing more than a second ahead of Austria’s Markus Swoboda in the VL2 final to win his sixth career world title.

“A lot of work goes into getting to these events, and to get on top of the podium,” McGrath said.

“I didn’t feel like it was my best race today, but I managed to pull through and get the win, so I’m pretty happy about that.”

McGrath will now head back to Australia for a fortnight, before travelling to Toronto, Canada, to compete at the Invictus Games.

Dylan Littlehales finished fifth in the KL3 men’s final, while Jocelyn Neumueller came in seventh in the KL1 final.
