Denmark Wins Nail Biting Speedway World Cup Final By One Point

Posted:

Danish skipper Niels-Kristian Iversen was elated with his last-heat heroics as he snatched the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup from Poland with just metres to spare in Bydgoszcz.

The Danes won one of the all-time great SWC Finals on 38 points ‰ÛÒ pipping the Poles who finished on 37 and Australia, who claimed bronze on 36. Team Great Britain were fourth on 16.

Denmark went into heat 20 tied on 36 points with Poland and NKI knew he had to beat Janusz Kolodziej to win his fourth SWC gold medal.

The former FIM Speedway Grand Prix star was holding second place and worked wonders to keep Iversen at bay, but the world No.3 refused to give in and powered past on the last corner to break the hosts‰Ûª hearts and leave the Danes delirious.

Iversen was over the moon to regain the Ove Fundin Trophy at the ZKS Polonia Stadium in such spectacular circumstances and inflict Poland‰Ûªs first SWC Final defeat on home shale since Australia won at Wroclaw in 2001.

‰ÛÏThat was just insane. I just kept trying for all four laps. I was building speed up and I knew I was getting closer and closer." Iversen said. ‰ÛÏI don‰Ûªt think Janusz knew where to go in the end. I saw him look back a few times and I was just trying all the different lines. It worked out perfectly.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªd never managed to win in Poland before. It was close but we managed to do it. It was absolutely fantastic.‰Û
