FINLAND | EXPERIENCED ILONEN ‘’ON COURSE’’ FOR A GOOD TOURNAMENT
Like plenty of other northern European countries, Finland tend to prefer the Winter version of the Olympics where they excel at the skiing events and always have a strong team in the ice hockey. They have an outside chance of a medal in a ball sport at Rio, but it really is an outside chance…
Men’s Golf- Mikko Ilonen
He’s not one of the more illustrious names in the field but Ilonen is a very capable golfer with five tournament wins under his belt. Interestingly, he likes playing in Sweden and he likes beating Swedes.
He’s twice won in Sweden and saved what was perhaps the best performance of his career for the 2014 Volvo World Matchplay where in the final he beat… Henrik Stenson. The same Henrik Stenson who is favourite to win gold in Rio.
Given this is a course no-one has played before and his vast experience as a pro of 15 years, the consistent Ilonen might just fancy his chances here.[button-request-a-quote-long main_text=”Do you want to SCORE more FANS or win new customers with ball sports specialised language services?” button_text=”Get a free quote here” button_link=”http://bit.ly/BIT_quote”]
