The International Axe Throwing Championships (IATC) just took place this past weekend, and boy, did the MANIAX crew make Australia proud! 🪓🇦🇺🇨🇦
A number of our amazing staff, league players and some of our AXE-tended MANIAX clan travelled to compete in Canada at one of the grandest events the sport of axe throwing has to offer & we have some incredible milestones to celebrate.
Congratulations —Sean Rundell, aka "Lumbersexual" from Abbotsford's League, who carved his way to victory and became the first-ever Aussie to win an IATC event in the Under 55s tournament! 🙌🏻
And to Connor Hugginson aka "C-man" who although hailing originally from Lumberjax Axe Throwing in the UK, represented Australia and MANIAX with style to finish 7th in the 2023 Wilson Cup. Throwing against the best throwers in the world, this is an incredible achievement, huge congrats from all of your MANIAX family.
We'd like to do a special shoutout to some fantastic folks who made this journey unforgettable:
🎯A massive thank you to the Warriors Axe Throwing for hosting us with incredible hospitality at their venue. They even chauffeured our crew back and forth from the train station over an hour away, going the extra mile (or … extra kilometre! 😅🚗)
🎯 To the BATL Portlands crew who generously provided our Aussies with practice space, free of charge, for a few days. You guys absolutely rock! 🤘🏻
🎯 To the entire BATL and IATF crew for organising an unforgettable week of axe throwing madness. From the scorers to the judges and all the venue staff, you made it an experience to remember.
🎯To the incredible axe throwing community who gave such a warm welcome and thunderous cheers for our Aussie competitors, Thank you for showing us what this sport is all about ❤️
Last but not least, a massive round of applause to all our dedicated MANIAX throwers. You represented our company and our country with sheer awesomeness. We couldn't be prouder of each and every one of you! 🌟
If all the AXE-citement of IATC has got you hyped for throwing some axes - Registrations for APATC are open!! Being the Asia Pacific Axe Throwing Champion has a pretty nice ring to it don't you think? 😉
