EXCITING MOMENTS AHEAD
What can be expected to happen on the course? The biggest favorite in the MPO division is definitely the local superhero, a multiple time Danish Champion, Karl Johan Nybo. The Danish legend will be challenged by a punch on Finnish top players, including the Häme brothers Mikael and Joonatan, young rising star Daniel Davidsson and a couple of more. Or will the top Swedes rise to the podium? At least Henric Hagman and Josef Berg have got the talent to challenge favorites. Can Danish stars Kristian Spliid or Hjalte Jensen beat the others? Maybe there will be a surprise winner from the Netherlands, France, Norway, UK or Austria?
In FPO we may see an exciting battle between Rachel Turton (UK) and Heidi Laine (FIN). However, this duo can’t make mistakes because the local trio (Camilla Kampen, Lydie Hellgren and Iben Blaabjerg) and Heidi’s little sister Sonja are ready to step up for the podium places.
This will be exciting. Absolutely.
