The third place went to tiebreak between the Finnish duo Jussi Suvanto and Terro Kalliolevo vs Kevin Ashman and Mark Bytheway. Ashman answered the questions alone, and it worked well for him, as he got all 3 questions right, while the finnish duo missed a question about the name of the Italian Super heavyweight champion who won gold at the 2008-olympics.
