    Oh, stupid me, I should not have written this just before going to bed. The only excuse I can make is that in my native language we never use Q.

    Jarkko Koski-Vähälä was a decent Finnish javelinist (84,12). I don't know whether and how he is related with Lauri, but together they sandwhich K from two sides. Jarkko's coach Kimmo Kinnunen completes the concentration at K.

    (Kimmo's father Jorma was already mentioned above, but his brother Jarkko and son Jami have also thrown the spear...)

    Hey, it's morning and I should go to work and stop writing these silly things.
