OLAH was the favorite already last year, but failed to win his first Men? singles gold. Experienced Mika RASANEN challenged OLAH and beat him in the final.

This year RASANEN, and last year? bronze medalists Timo TAMMINEN and veteran Pasi VALASTI (41, still going strong) are expected to be the most dangerous rivals on OLAH? way to gold.

Young players like Roope KANTOLA and Toni SOINE can cause possible upset.
