The international World Trophy championship was decided this weekend in Vienna, Austria.

Ferry Svan from Vansbro finished in fifth place and Emil Hansson from Mora in seventh place during Saturday's competitions.

Ferry Svan also set a new European record in the quarterfinals.

"Definitely happy"

The competitors must get through four disciplines where the fastest in each heat goes on and the last two make it to the finals.

The competition was the starting shot for the international PRO class, where both Emil Hansson and Ferry Svan faced stiff competition.

- I'm definitely happy.

The next big competition will be the World Cup at home and in August it is the Nordic championship that works as a qualifier there.

There I want to be the best Swede, and I will do everything I can to become one, says Ferry Svan.
