Roberto Garbui of Italy opened with a perfect
in Finnish Marathon 2008, but the Italian superstars soon had to give up the first place
to local favourites Riku Pennanen & Kosti Salonen.
Riku ensured victory for his team with an ice-cold score
21.08 after 13 competition rounds,
including 8 consecutive rounds with an average score
The best player of the weekend was Harry Grönlund, however, with 0.01
points better average
21.07 after 14 competition rounds.
His excellent score includes 12 misses on lane 4, a relatively narrow “sand box”
(also called “ladders” or “double wedges”).
The best female player of the competition was the reigning Finnish champion Mirva Juhola,
with a fine average score
23.55 after 11 competition rounds.
The defending Finnish Marathon winners 2007, Pasi Aho & Kari Kulmala, were left on 3rd place,
behind Roberto Garbui & Rudi Giroldini on 2nd place.
Some occasional misfortunes, such as 7 points at the “cannon”,
did not stop Kari & Pasi from enjoying the game
and fighting for a good standing in the competition.
