In the Semi-Finals, Finlandboy faced his biggest challenge at the time when he was set to face PeteThePlayer in a Crash 3 race to get the Green Gem. In the end Finlandboy was able to win the match.
In the Grand Final Finlandboy quickly fell behind RabidWombatJR, Samura1Man and AuronSuper95. Auron started dropping back when he reached the third warp room, and Finlandboy was able to beat him and steal his 3rd place right at the end, which prompted Auron to quit.

Participation in IAS? Nein!Edit
A couple of days before sign-ups closed, Finlandboy returned and joined the tournament.
In Round 2 Finlandboy faced TheMachineKing in a Spyro 1 race to get 20 lives. Finlandboy won the match easily. Due to timezones, he was not able to compete in any of the winners' Shaggin' Wagons.
In Round 3, Finlandboy raced Manaidr in a The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time race to get 3 bottles and meet Zelda. Thanks to game knowledge and luck, Finlandboy won the match.
In the Quarter-Finals, Finlandboy "was forced" to face TheStickKid in a Psybadek race to beat the 3rd boss. However, the game backfired on StickKid and Finlandboy was able to win. He also won against Manaidr in the Crash 3 winners' Shaggin' Wagon, and earned a bye to the Grand Final.
In the Grand Final, Finlandboy faced Nintendogen64, SuperGhettoSandwich and Manaidr in the biggest grand final so far: A Bug's Life (beat the Tree), Ocarina of Time (meet Zelda) and Crash 3 (any% starting from warp room 3). After Ocarina of Time, Finlandboy was behind Manaidr, but managed to overtake him in Crash 3 and in the end finished 1st in the match, and the tournament.
Participation in I'm A Speedrunner 9Edit

In Round 2, Finlandboy was set to face Supster131 in King Arthurs World. After many delays and technical problems (and drama) finally the match got finished with Supster winning, and thus Finlandboy's 9 match winning streak came to an end. Due to him going to the army, he was unable to join IAS10
Participation in RIP: ResurrectedEdit
Finlandboy was drawn to Group E. His tournament didn't begin well as he lost his match with Baronzef in Crash 2. But he managed to beat LukeRF44 & GoldanSaint in Crash 3 and moved on to Round 2 as a runner-up of Group E.
In Round 2, Finlandboy was set to face TrobHD in CTR. Their first race was called a draw when Finlandboy only managed to win by 6 seconds. Finlandboy was unable to recreate the win in a rematch and continued his journey in the losers' bracket.
In the first Losers' Bracket match, Finlandboy was set to go against Nintendogen64. However, since Angus disappeared after losing his Round 2 match, Finlandboy automatically advanced to match 2.
In Match 2, Finlandboy was set to face CrystalFissure. However, Fissure decided to "respectfully forfeit" their match due to his busy schedule in the upcoming days and not wanting to hold up the entire tournament. And thus Finlandboy advanced to the final Losers' Bracket match.
In Match 3, Finlandboy faced Kolapro in Crash 1. Finlandboy managed to win and moved on to the Semi-Finals.
In the Semi-Finals, Finlandboy was set to face Baronzef again, this time in Crash 3. While Barons was "arguing" with HeyDavid17, Finlandboy sneaked his way to victory and moved on to the Grand Final for the 3rd time in IAS.
In the Grand Final, Finlandboy faced TrobHD, Playsihull and COOLPRO195 in another huge medley: Crash 1 - Start from Road To Nowhere, collect 1 coloured gem and 2 clear gems [NTSC-J], Crash 2 - Start from Warp Room 2, collect 2 coloured gems and 6 clear gems [PAL] & Crash 3 - Start from Warp Room 2, collect 2 coloured gems and 6 clear gems [NTSC-U]. Despite his best effort Finlandboy couldn't close the gap Trob made in Crash 1. In the end, Finlandboy finished 2nd, only a few minutes behind Trob.
