Mobile Phone Throwing World Championships

Why do people throw it?

Finland is known as the home country of the mobile phones and Finns have always been very fashion-conscious about the phones.
Mobile phone is an essential part of us that connects us to nearly anywhere in the world but when you most need it the battery runs out or your sweetheart doesn’t answer or some one doesn’t return your call. Hope, anticipation, passion and frustration concentrates on mobile phone.
What happens to the old mobile phones? 

For example the battery is toxic and must be handled properly.  But before mobile phones become toxic waste they can be recycled in sport activities ie. in Mobile Phone Throwing, the only sport where  you can pay back all the frustrations and disappointments caused by these modern equipments.

The equipment
The mobile phones used at the Championships are original phones with batteries.
Competitors can use only the  phones provided by Fennolingua. Some competitors have wanted to throw their own phones as far as possible but that is against the rules. Competitors can choose the phone that fits best to his/her hand or looks the nicest. There are clearly two parties in this; some believe that the heavier phones flies further  than lighter ones and others think just the opposite.
Mobile Phone Throwing as a phenomenon speaks to people and interests people all over the world. The mobile phone is an amazing invention that makes the distances shorter and makes people available anywhere and anytime. Humour connects people globally and is also part of this sport. The  children are thrilled  since they are allowed to throw these expensive phones.
