Aussie Graham wins moguls world championship silver

Australia's Matt Graham has claimed a moguls silver medal at the World Championships in Bakuriani, Georgia.

The three-time Winter Olympian, who finished second at the 2018 Games in PyeongChang, is in hot form, having won for the first time since 2017 at Deer Valley in the United States earlier this month.

Graham, from Gosford on the NSW central coast, was participating at his sixth world championships and progressed through two rounds of elimination to reach the six-man 'super final'.

The 28-year-old saved his best run for the final round, wowing the judges with a near perfect run to score 88.90 points.

"It's pretty surreal," he said.

"Everyone was skiing so well today and so fast.

"When the score came up and it was over 88, that was awesome, I knew I had put the pressure on the top guys and managed to hold onto second place so I am over the moon."

Graham, who had a disappointing Olympics last year in Beijing after a preparation interrupted by a broken collarbone, was edged out of the gold medal by Canadian Michael Kingsbury (89.82), with Sweden's Walter Wallberg (88.52) claiming bronze.

Another Aussie in Cooper Woods finished 11th with a score of 80.50.
