Team Australia showed great promise from the off, leading all meeting long until the final race in heat 20. Although second by the narrowest margin was difficult to swallow, it was enough to qualify Mark Lemon‰Ûªs young squad directly to the final in Sweden in a couple of months‰Ûª time.

As hosts, Sweden is seeded directly into the final and will be met by Poland and Denmark. Semi-final two was held in the Czech Republic at the weekend where Poland dominated against Russia, Germany and the Czechs.

Team Australia qualify being the highest second placed team from the two semi-finals.

Current Australian Speedway Champion and Team Australia‰Ûªs Under- 21 captain, Brady Kurtz, said: ‰ÛÏWe felt unlucky not to win. We lead from the start and throughout the whole meeting until the bitter end where gate positions in the last round of heats went against us. The Danes having 3 out of 4 inside gates on us didn‰Ûªt help but the main thing was to qualify through to the final, which is great, we did that. We have improvement in us as a team and can now prepare and look forward to the final.‰Û
