So Finland won the World Championship in ice hockey last sunday and the whole country went crazy for 3 days and I missed probably one of the biggest parties in Finland in the last 16 years, because I was in UK.
Thank god one of my favourite photographers, Samuli Ikäheimo was there to document on what happened when in Lahti after Finland won the final game 6-1 against Sweden.
quick translation on what's going on in the slideshow: In the beginning people are singing the Finnish national anthem and pretty much after that they are shouting Suomi, which means Finland of course and shouting "Finland is the new world champion"!
Oh yes, we do love our ice hockey!
