This year Lars Brown and Peter Samuelsson are the winners again in the EB-Marathon in Eskilstuna after last year’s loss to CJ-Ryner and Anders Olsson. This was the 6th time in the last 8th years that the couple stood as winners in the end.» Results
This year the winning result craved an average of 20,2 and the margin was only 2 strokes to Sandra Weaver in pair with her father Peter Nordin.
A little bit more thrill than expected was left to the last lane when Peter Samuelsson missed the labyrinth for the first time in the competition. Not only once but three times. Scoring a 4 on the last lane left them with 2 strokes margin to father and daughter. Sometimes the scenario of "needing" a 7 on the last lane to lose is letting loose mind ghost that you didn’t think existed.
On third place was another couple with great merits, the Jönköping couple of Peter Eisenschmidth and Jonas Gustafsson.
Best individually on the rather easy courses of MunktellArena was Peter Nordin (19,6). Four more players did also manage to get a blue average, Lars Brown (19,7), Erik Tiekstra (19,8), Daniel Johansson (19,9 ) and Jonas Gustafsson (19,9).
In total 49 couples played the 24 hour marathon this year.
