Alf Parvi and Valtteri Walldén from Aalto Debating Society won the tournament, whilst Sara Halonen and Johan Vilén broke as judges to the semi-finals. Milla Huuskonen, debating with Craig Mcdonald, from Helsinki Debating Society broke to the semi-finals and Arto Järvelä from Tampere Debating Society judged in the Finals! We were also psyched to see Ieva Pez Espada Cepaite, an Edinburgh University Debates Union debater formerly with Helsinki Debating Society, make it to the semis with Mari Liis Pedak.

The fantastic Chief Adjudication team lead by Helena Ivanov and Steven Ramesh Rajavinothan proved that Tallinn EUDC 2017 is in good hands. A big thank you to the TTÜ Väitlusklubi and Eesti Väitlusselts for organizing Estonian Open 2016 and making it such a fun tournament to participate in!
