article imageCanadian Texting Champ Heads To New York

By KJ Mullins     Jan 11, 2010 in Technology
Kathy Spence took the prize for fastest texter in Canada, and now it's time to compete for the Mobile World Cup in New York City held on January 13. She is going for the top prize of $100,000.
There will be contestants from 13 countries at the Mobile World Cup this year.
Last summer at the LG event 16-year-old Kathy Spence of Scarborough, Ontario was the surprise winner beating out last year's winner Mark "Jervy" Breiva, 18, from Mississauga, Ontario.
Spence was able to speed through a sentence in a mere four seconds.
Before she was named a champ Spence was sending out 200 text messages a day to her friends and family. Her parents didn't really like that she was more interested in texting though, thinking homework was a tad more important.
That may have changed now that mom, also named Kathy Spence is a texting whiz reports Metro:
"I'm into texting now too," said Spence's mom, who is also named Kathy Spence.
"When I text her and she doesn't respond. I say 'you are slow, I'm faster than you'," the older Spence said laughing.
Runner-up Amy Konecnik, 17, from Saskatoon will be joining Spence for the World Championship on Thursday.
