Weekend fun news: Finnish Teenager throws Olympic distance with old Nokia.



This is fun indeed :). A Finnish teenager has won a mobile phone throwing contest on Saturday by hurling his old Nokia phone 101.46 meters. Only bad thing is that we don’t which model he used for this contest. Though I can bet on Nokia 3310 and above picture is for illustration only.

This annual contest is one of many offbeat events that are held in the summer in Finland. The teenager’s name is Ere Karjalainen, who beat around 50 contestants, including some who had travelled from England and India, said he had practiced only once and prepared mainly “by drinking”. Not that the skills are totally comparable, but he bettered the gold medal javelin throw at the London Olympics by nearly 17 meters.
