A Conversation for Unusual Sports

Unusual Finnish Sports

Well the Wife Carrying Championships and Sauna competition have both been listed but what about air guitar, swamp football, mosquito killing and kissing championships which I'm told all take in Finland every year as well. With the England v Finland match on satellite isn't it time terrestial tv picked up some of these other great sports as they sound like a lot more fun... If anyone has any details on them then great as all I know is they take place but I'm sure they've got to be worth a look!

Oh, and in case you were unaware, the UK had its first National Wife Carry Championship somewhere (I think) in Scotland in the last couple of weeks. The winner was due to go on to represent us in the World Championships. No news on who was that I'm afraid...
