On Monday, Sweden announced their team for the Swedish-Finnish national athletics match in Tampere this weekend.

Among others, Daniel Ståhl, who is very popular in Finland due to his Finnish roots, Melwin Lycke Holm, a 15-year-old teenager in high jump, Kim Amb and long jumpers Khaddi Sagnia and Thobias Montler will be seen.

The entire Swedish team can be seen at the end of the article.

- I'm looking forward to a tough fight.

We have many first-timers on the adult team, but it’s also great to get world stars involved, Swedish team captain Karin Torneklint commented according to Aftonbladet.

Sweden’s most famous missing athlete is one of the brightest stars in athletics, pole vaulter Armand Duplantis.

The 601 Swede, who jumped at his best this summer, announced over the weekend that he would focus on the end-of-season Diamond League races instead of the national match.

The Swedish team's first-timers this summer have been particularly toned by second-generation high jumper Holm, who has broken the age records of his Olympic-gold father Stefan Holm and improved his outdoor track record by eight cents to 217 this summer.

Another interesting newer acquaintance is 17-year-old Oskar Edlund, who took the 400-meter authentic Swedish championship.

In mid-August, Melwin Lycke Holm rejoiced in the country championship on his Instagram account.

Holmi, 15, became the youngest athlete to win the Swedish championship ever.

Thobias Montler, who won the 2019 European Championships silver in indoor tracks in men's lengths, puts Finland's well-tuned tall men in combs.

Khaddi Sagnia, who competes in women's length in Tampere, has got a good jump after a serious injury.

The Instagram video below shows Sagnia’s fresh 675-cent GP race winning jump.

There has been turmoil in the western neighbor’s discus throwing circles due to a case of disruption to the country’s championships.

Axel Härstedt, who disturbed his opponents in the race, will be eliminated, and Sweden will be represented by Simon Pettersson, who has stalled 71.37 this season, in addition to Simon Pettersson and Jakob Gardenkrans, who has made an official complaint about Härstedt.

The traditionally safest point machine in the Swedish match, the men’s javelin throw, is becoming a much more difficult venue this fall than usual.

The Finnish spear trio is best placed as the fourth on the world list with a result of 86.49 staying with Kim Amb.

The other two Swedish throwers are Sebastian Thörngren and Esa Hiltunen.

Lassi Etelätalo's domestic top throw of 82.20 is enough instead of world statistics 15.

In addition to Etelätalo, Finland is represented in the men's spear race by Toni Kuusela and Antti Ruuskanen.
