A new record was set Saturday in the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships in Savonlinna, Finland, by 18 year-old Ere Karjalainen, who revealed that he had only ever had one practice session and that most of his pre-competition training programme consisted of "drinking".

The new record was set when Karjalainen flung an old Nokia handset an astounding 101.46 metres.

This was the first-ever throw in the history of the Championships that passed the 100 metre mark, and was 17 metres farther than the throw than brought a gold medal in the javelin event at the London Olympics.

Karjalainen told the Reuters news agency that he had had only a single practice throw before the event, and that he prepared for the Champions by "mainly drinking".

Finland did get a bronze for mens javelin at the 2012 olympics. Plus a silver and bronze for sailing.

The Finns have traditionally been good at throwing things and I think this guy certainly could have a future in some real sport. That was quite a throw he made.

Some ethnic practices are better left unreported.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

You have to admit throwing something over a hundred meters is pretty impressive no?

I can throw a line of bullshit further than that.
