Finland Fails To Win All Four Mobile Phone Throwing Championships

Published by at

Now in it's tenth year, the World Mobile Phone Throwing Championship has been won by Pauli Kosunen, throwing his unspecified handset over 79 metres - roughly equivalent to an olympic level discus throw. In the women's competition the Finn's also saw success as Keikki Hamalainen threw her phone 37 metres, and the junior prize went to a 43 metre throw from Verneri Aleksejev. Unfortunately the final prize went to Japan, as Team Happi took that back to the Far East from the Far North.

Although being patriots, I'd like to point out the winning throw in the UK Championship this year was 89 metres, so I'm sure we can put up a UK challenger in 2010. Perhaps next year we should send Rafe to enter for the glory of the smartphone world?
