Poland were forced to settle for silver, despite topping the scores over two days and Bartosz Zmarzlik dropping just one point over 12 heats.
Skipper Maciej Janowski sat out Day 2 after being left battered and bruised following a crash in heat 21 of Final 1, with Patryk Dudek stepping in. He paid tribute to his compatriots‰Ûª efforts in his absence.
He said: ‰ÛÏThey did a really good job. They were so close, and a final after a two-day meeting is always a little bit of a lottery.
‰ÛÏI am very proud of the boys. They gave 100 percent and did a really good job. I think we can be very proud.‰Û
