Amateur Boxing: Sweden rules the roost in Oslo's ''Battle of Scandinavia"
by Michael O'Neill
January 28, 2013

(JAN 28) The ‘Battle of Scandinavia’ was fought this weekend, at least in the boxing ring, at the home of Oslo Bokseklubb in Jordalgata 12 in the Norwegian capital when male and female teams from Denmark, Finland and Sweden joined the host nation in the Four Nations Round Robin tournament.

This has always been a keenly contested tournament and this year proved no exception as fans enjoyed some great bouts before a highly appreciative audience.

Sweden came ‘top of the podium’ overall (men and women's totals combined) emerging victorious with nine points followed by Norway with six points and Denmark with three. Finland alas on this occasion did not defeat any of their neighbours though insofar as the women's bouts were concerned they were hampered by the absence of star performer, Mira Potkonen. Three points were awarded for a win, one point for a draw and of course no points for a lost encounter.

The Norwegian women were the stars of the female bouts with Ingrid Egner, Fam Elgan and Marielle V. Hansen each going through the three day event, undefeated. Hansen had been in excellent form at the recent Boras Box Cup event in Sweden and again was in fine form here being nominated as Norway’s leading female boxer of the tournament . The Swedish award went to Linnea Strandell, that for Denmark to Diana Nadim and for Finland, to the 60kg lightweight, Cecilia Nilsson.

In Sunday’s Final Team Match, the Swedes defeated Norway 4:3. As the Swedish team were short of a 54kg female boxer, Norway’s Camilla Johansen from Raufoss actually represented Sweden in this tournament, and enjoyed wins over Denmark and Finland losing only against her fellow countrywoman Marielle V.Hansen.

Our grateful thanks to Norges Bokseforbund for the results from the tournament which was as always extremely well organised by the Norges Bokseforbund in collaboration with the famous Oslo Boxeklubb, one of whose most famous fighters was of course one Cecilia Brækhus, recently voted by Ring Magazine as their female Pro. Boxer of 2012 and who has been for the past three years WBAN’s European Fighter of the Year.
