SWITZERLAND’s Martin Fuchs and Clooney 51 finally took the top spot on the podium last Sunday evening after two runner-up finishes at previous championships in the last year.

In what was one of the most exciting final rounds in many years, 27-year-old Fuchs pipped Britain’s Ben Maher at the very end to become the sixth Swiss rider in the 62-year history of the event to claim the individual gold medal.
