One person became a legend when he was on the winning Swedish team in the International North Sea Petanque Tournament in Oslo.

Harko Verhagen of Sweden became a legend when he was a part of the winning Swedish team at the INSPT in Oslo 24th to 26th of June 1999.
Harko is by birth Dutch, and has participated 3 times at the INSPT representing the Netherlands, in 1986, 87 and 89.

In 1987 the Netherlands won the INSPT in Shedfield, GBR, so in Oslo Harko was on the winning team for the second time, but this time for a different nation !
