Michael Phelps, swim your heart out. When it comes to SMSing, no one can beat My Svensson — at least in her native Sweden.
The 17-year-old student needed only 61 seconds to write a 141-character SMS rich in crisp words and snappy punctuation to claim the Swedish SMSing championship, sponsored by a Swedish telecoms operator.
”I was very tense in the finals when I realised how much money I could win,” said My, who plans to use her 25 000 krona ($3 900) prize for a holiday in France, the Dagens Nyheter
newspaper reported on Saturday.
My — who out-thumbed her nearest rival by seven seconds — nevertheless failed to surpass her personal best of 50 seconds, achieved during the semifinals. — Sapa-AFP
