People throw mobiles in Finland - level 2, A12
Mobile phones don’t always work perfectly. They can have a bad signal or a dying battery and they can make us very angry.
In Finland 12 years ago, they came up with a new idea. They started to throw their phones as far as possible not only to make themselves feel better but also in the name of sports.
People from all over the world met for this year’s event and one man from Finland threw his mobile phone101 metres. He was the winner.
He didn’t practise much before the event. He spent the day before in the pub.
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
