At least we won the Ice Cream Deathmatch

While Tampere was lost, we won't return from GUADEC without any medals: I won the ice cream deathmatch held during the Collabora boat party on Bosphorus.

From Vincent Untz:

We of course had the Ice Cream Deathmatch. So, it seems people thought it was all about speed, while really it's all about enjoying :-) On the other hand, Henri Bergius (if I remember well) is just not a human since he ate everything so quickly. But, well, his bio mentions "Henri Bergius is a former Viking based in the Nordic country of Finland"...

Vincent, the whole point is that if you enter a competition, enter it to win. Regardless of whether that involves eating ice cream, racing crappy cars to the Arctic Ocean, or crossing Europe on 50cc "Monkey" mini-mopeds. If you're not the first, you're the last [1].
