The last tournament of season 2016 is approaching this weekend. As 8th season of the Tour is coming to the end, it’s good to review who is still able to come as the winners this Sunday.

Let’s start with our youngest guns – Juniors! The situation in this division is crystal clear – we already have the winner! He is Lithuanian Aidas Stončius. Sadly Aidas is not able to travel to the last tournament, but 5 tournaments was enough for him to become unreachable. In general junior division was dominated by 5 young guns from Lithuania, who were the only players to compete in all 5 tournaments. Vėjas Ūselis currently placed second will not compete too. He can only be moved to 3rd place by Ieva Navickaitė, but she needs a victory at Virumaa Open. If she doesn’t win – then she’s still in big fight for 3rd place overall with her younger brother Motiejus, who is only 2 points behind his sister!

Turning from youngest to oldest – Master division, we top 3 players from last year to most likely finish on podium again. Unfortunately Tadas Ūselis, currently placed second,  had to cancel his trip to Virumaa, and will not compete for overall victory. And he had quite good chances to reach the top! The competition for the title will be between last year winner Darius Gricius and top Estonian Master Raimo Kimmel. 2nd place is enough for Darius to secure overall leadership. Raimo obviously needs to win the last tournament, and hope for Darius not to finish second. If Raimo is 1st this weekend, and Darius – 3rd, they both will be completely tied! In this case audience will enjoy sudden death competition for the title!

What’s the situation at Female frontier? It’s obvious that we know top 3 players – it’s even two Latvians – Anna Riekština and Elena Vecmane together with Estonian Liis Päid. Liis currently 3rd, still has a tiny chance to jump into second position – this would happen if Liis wins, and Elena finishes 3rd or worse. But Elena is probably thinking of totally different scenario – she’s the only one who still can challenge her younger teammate Anna Riekština comfortably sitting at “yellow jersey” position. For Elena to steal the victory she needs to win the last tournament, and wait for Anna to finish 3rd or worse. If Anna is 3rd, the tiny difference in their results would come into game – the worst tournament for both – Joulumae Open. Elena was 4th and Anna 5th! All the rest would be exactly the same for both! What we’ll see for sure – new history will be written this weekend – 1st ever division winner from Latvia will be crowned at BST!

For the end – biggest Open division! We have two pair competing for podium positions. Latvian Gunars Grundmanis still has some chances to challenge Lithuanian Mindaugas Pošius for the 3rd. But the most important game will be between current leader, champion of 2014, Lithuania’s Gabrielius Gricius and raising discgolf star from Estonia – Siim Isup! If Siim wins the tournament – it’s enough for him to finish 1st in the season! Victory is sufficient for Gabrielius too. If Gabrielius doesn’t win, and Siim ends 2nd – they become tied in overall points (both would have 390). In this case 4th place is enough for Gabrielius. The would be tied in head to head competition (2-2), but then 5th tournament comes into game – and Siim had 5th place in Zarasai. If Siim is 2nd, and Gabrielius – 5th this weened – we’d witness sudden death!
