Seems like the writer has gone crazy?? No it’s a crazy world after all and I just write about crazy things that happen. Mobile Phone Throwing is an international sport wherein participants throw their mobile phones. Champions are chosen based on the distance covered by the throw and technique employed.

The game originated in Finland in the year 2000 when it was first conducted in Savonlinna. Participants from all round the world participated in the competition organized by Fennolingua, a translation & interpretation company. Partnered by local recycling companies, the sport soon became popular due its concept and emphasis on recycling electronic wastes.
