The 640kg is always a very tough competition and the Irish lads did well to edge Sweden on caution to qualify for the semi finals. They found themselves in a bronze medal match-up with Germany loosing the first end in 1min 55sec and the second end in 1min 19 secs. Switzerland defeated Great Britain in the final to win another gold medal.

Chinese Taipei who benefited from their recent training camp in Clonmany showed no mercy in the ladies 540kg competition as they ran out convincing winners defeating the Netherlands in the final. We wish all the competitors a safe trip home.
