World Synchro Championships 2011

Japan

Okay, okay, I admit that there is just a teensie weensie hangover this morning, it could possibly have something to do with Finland taking both the gold and the silver but it could also have something to do with the very nice party we had round at my place after the event. The gallon of Blue Whale cocktail is now just a small jar sitting in the fridge :S

What can I say? The weekend was simply wonderful and a fair amount of thankyou’s will now follow.
Huge thanks to Nikon Finland for endorsing the event, our OC photo crew was each equipped with the state of the art flagship camera bodies with accompanying fast glass.
An enormous round of applause to STLL and the Taitoluistelu team and a ma-hoosive thanks to Elina Paasonen for organising the photo operations in the most maticulate and professional manner I have experienced to date. Another huge thanks is due to my good buddies Jyrki Kostermaa and Sari Niskanen. We really had a great team.
