Athletes Limber Up For The Mobile Phone Olympics

from the getting-intense dept

Remember last week when we talked about the Ukranian mobile phone throwing contests? Apparently, that’s nothing. Over in the UK, they’re having an entire Mobile Phone Olympics where phone flinging is only one of four events. Other competitions will take place in (1) text messaging – where you need to accurately thumb in an 80 character message and send it to the judge before the competition (2) MMS messaging – where you’re given a more complex messaging task involving images and text and (3) playing a video game on the phone and scoring as many points as possible in 2 minutes. How long until these become real Olympic sports?
