Cardoso beat compatriot Filipe Toledo in an all-Brazilian final as the South Americans dominated the contest.

They provided three of the four semi-finalists with only Gabe Kling of the United States breaking the party.

Australian hopes were ended heart-breakingly in the quarter-finals when Cardoso edged out Chris Friend and Hizunome Bettero shaded Mitch Crews - both by less than half a point out of 20.

Cardoso sealed the final with late points for a series of gouges, and said he was delighted with victory.

“I was here and came 5th when Adriano (De Souza) won," Cardoso said. "This is so amazing for me. I was really, really nervous when Filipe (Toledo) scored the interference. I only needed a small score and I kept falling. Then I got that 7-point-ride and I knew that I had won and I was so happy.”
