Australia's muscleman and unsung hero, Tim Jacobs (36) to-day issued due-reminder of his immense endurance-paddling talents by winning Hong Kong's 23km Steelcase Dragon Run final world surfski series event in most emphatic fashion when he raced across the finish-line 52 seconds ahead of his nearest rival, South Africa's 2011 world-champion Dawid Mockè..

South Africa's Dawid Mockè said afterwards "Tim & I have now won this race and the Dubai Shamaal on 2 occasions each, and we always battle it out to the last metre, but I've got to acknowledge that "Tiny" Tim showed us who the boss is here to-day."

Hank McGregor, South Africa's world marathon K1 champion and generally regarded as the globe's best all-round K1, k2, single-surfski as well as double-surfski paddler, finished in 3rd place, just 35 seconds behind Mockè who heads the Ocean Paddler World Surfski Series (WSS) Rankings for 2011. This is Mockè's third world-title, having won it in 2009 and 2010 as well.

South Africa's Beijing Olympic K4 stroke, Michele Eray (SA) who was ruled out of the Dragon Run due to injury heads the Women's World Rankings...
