No. 6 Australia become first wheelchair rugby world champion outside of North America

In the 2014 IWRF World Championship gold medal game, Australia had built a 5 point lead over Canada at the half time break (32-27),  which they extended to 11 points by games end (67-56) for the gold. This was the first time the IWRF Word Championship was won by a country outside of North America (past winners are USA in 1995, 1998, 2006, 2010 and CAN in 2002), and the first time the USA had not competed in the final at Worlds.

Ryley Batt dominated as a 3.5 athlete throughout the tournament, however, 3.5-pointer Zak Madell from Canada was selected as the tournament's Best 3.5 and MVP.
