Sports in Finland


I kid you not. The wife carrying competition is very popular in Finland, though it doesn’t actually have to be your wife. And the winner gets the woman's weight in beer.

But I think Sister Sweden would be a bad candidate if the carrier was serious about winning. Too much groping and fondling would take place for the poor guy to ever reach the finishing line. :XD:

If they carry them like that Sweden would be more of a balance problem than a distraction

Any sport that rewards the winner with beer is a great sport in my eyes. Yay beer.

As a swedish believer in gender equality that also happens to be married to a finnish (Well ålandian) girl, I think it should be the other way around! My wife would be drunk for a year if she won!:D

I don't know. Sister Sweden is pretty big, so maybe he's going for a high risk, high reward approach.

Huh...so THAT'S where the Hetalia fans got the game to play every Hetalia Day from. (Of course we just make it a friendly race since the majority of us are minors so no beer involved.)

We had this school starting competition or something once and I was forced to join into this cause I weight as much as leaf. In the end, no one of the boys wanted, and one was forced to. Best thing: He dropped me right after the finish line!!! Lucky that there was sand but still!!! It hurt like hell!!! And it's very uncomfortable. Don't join... and I have to join again! Seriosly!

America has the same competition; with the winner receiving their wife's weight in beer, and cash equal to the number of five times their wife's weight in United States Dollars. ($750.60 if you're the winner this year!)
