koreans are the fastest texters in the world

Ah yes. Another competitive arena in which South Koreans are determined to dominate: texting. Speed texting, to be precise. Yesterday in New York City, two South Korean teenagers were crowned the fastest texters in the world: SKoreans named world texting champs

In the end, among a field of competitors from dozens of countries, 17-year-old Bae Yeong Ho and 18-year-old Ha Mok Min emerged as the team with the fastest thumbs in the LG Mobile World Cup -- in a challenge of both speed and accuracy -- taking the top prize of $100,000.

Second place and $20,000 went to the U.S. contestants -- 16-year-old Kate Moore of Des Moines, Iowa, who is the 2009 U.S. National Texting Champion, and 14-year-old Morgan Dynda of Pooler, Georgia, the 2009 runner-up. An Argentinian team came in third and the Brazilians took fourth.
