Coming over the final hurdles of squad 5 it was Finns Perttu Jussila and Joonas Jehkinen looking for the honor of leading the
squad and with a final game of 245 it was Jussila who stood aloft, leading his fellow countryman, 1378-1333.
"I always look forward to coming to Barcelona," stated Jussila, a member of the Finnish national team who lives in Tampere. "I am sorry to say that my game does not seem to match up with thse lanes but I always enjoy my stay. The sunshine is very welcome too as it hasn't seemed to have stopped raining this year back home in Finland."
Jussila had a high game of 267, equalled by Gheorge Catalin of Romania, so Dennis Eklund's 289 is still the high for the tournament.
Two more qualifying squads take to the Bowling Pedralbes lanes this evening and four more squads are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, each at 09:00, 13:00, 17:00 and 21:00.
