Third place in the competition on Lake Kegonsa near Madison, Wisconsin, went to his countryman Michał Burczyński.

Jabłoński, 53, said after his win on Wednesday: “I’m very pleased and proud of the style in which I competed.”

He added: "Time doesn’t stand still. The clock is ticking, but I have reason to be happy that I’m like wine - the older it is, the better it gets...”

On the last day of the championships, races were called off because of a thick a layer of wet snow on the ice, Jabłoński said, adding that the competition ended with the three events held on the first day.
