Oh man. People seem to be interested how this started, but the origins of the sport is pretty lame. We kinda had these rubber boot throwing competitions just because why not? Well the most common boot was a Nokia boot. When Nokia started to make phones it was just a matter of time that someone got the idea of throwing phones.

We kinda have a habit of making up ridiculous sports because we can only win at hockey. If we make up even less known sport we might win it every year :P

Actually, it is international, however the sport originated in Finland. (and, would I like to know exactly how it was started and the story of how people thought of it.)

Apparently the winner one year said that he prepared for the competition by “mainly drinking”

Can Finland use Nokia or is that cheating?

Wife carrying and mobile phone throwing are just two of the weird sports they have. Others include rubber boot throwing, finger pulling, sitting in an ant hill, sled kicking, ice swimming and mosquito swatting competitions.

...isn't the name for 'Mobile-Phone' literally 'Peace-Disruptor' in Iceland...?
