As there are all kinds of sports going on, but one doesn't often bother to start a new topic, here's a place for "all other sports".



You know what's ringette? It's a game invented 50 years ago as girl version of ice hockey. There have been 10 world championships this weekend included. In early tournaments Canada - home of the game - dominated so much that they had two or more teams. But since Finland won a gold it's been real rivalry.

Now we won fourth consecutive championship with 8-4 and 7-5 in best of 3 series.
This time it was played just between Finland and Canada, while USA and Sweden play for bronze.
There was also parallel tournament of USA and Sweden played U19 teams of Finland and Canada. We won that too.
Tomorrow it's for triple with U19 championship between Finland and Canada.

Finland did win every game of the ringette championships.


In other good news, Finland qualifies to volleyball world championship tournament, first time for over thirty years.

Finland got a wild card place in basketball world championship tournament!
Good thing too, the wild card system is being abolished.
We've never before passed qualifying. (And technically didn't now either.)

Once more school yards had fun with the classic finals of our handball series: Cocks vs Dicken.

Cocks won straight in three games.

American Football European Championship 2014

5th place: Denmark - Sweden 17-24
Bronze game: France - Finland 35-21
Final: Austria-Germany 27-30 OT

4th place is second worst result for Finland in the tournament now played 13th time.
It's also helluva nasty loss because it drops us out of 2015 world championships played in Sweden.

Goalball world championships:

Brazil slaughtered Finland in final 9-1, but silver's not bad in out home games.

In women's final Russia won USA.

Anybody watching golf? (Wish I could.)

After two days of PGA championship, Mikko Ilonen is doing better than I assume any Finn ever in a Major: he's tied 4th, 2 from leader McIlroy.

Basketball World Championships: Now with Finland!

Today Finland plays our first game ever in basketball world championship tournament - against USA!
What a proud - and likely, simultaneously utterly humiliating - moment for sport in this country.

Well the USA game was ugly (114-55) but today we have our first victory, Finland just won Ukraine 81-76!

We'll need to win another game (Dominican Republic, New Zealand, Turkey) to make it to playoffs.
