Austria's Jonas Müller denied Germany a clean sweep of the titles when he claimed men's singles gold on the final day of the International Luge Federation Luge World Championships in Oberhof.

Germany were aiming for a ninth victory to complete a dominant performance on their home track but Müller dashed those hopes.

Müller claimed victory in 1min 25.478sec to get the better of Germany's Max Langenhan who had to settle for silver in 1:25.582.

Austria grabbed two medals in the event as David Gleirscher claimed bronze in 1:25.599.

"After my fall in Sigulda, my sled was totally broken," said Müller.

"I flew home the next day unpacked my old sled again.

"I immediately got along well with the old sled.

"I like Oberhof as I’ve been quick here before and, as you can see, the old sled doesn’t seem so bad."

Germany’s eighth gold came in the team relay as their quartet triumphed in front of 5,300 spectators at the LOTTO Thuringia Ice Arena.

Langenhan was part of the team along with Anna Berreiter, Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken as they secured the title in 2:22.266.

Austria, featuring Müller, claimed silver in 2:22.289, while Latvia clocked 2:22.666 for bronze.
