The queen of messaging


Stockholm - Michael Phelps, swim your heart out.
When it comes to text messaging, 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 message rich in crisp words and snappy punctuation to claim the Swedish text messaging 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 (US$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 semi-finals. - Sapa-AFP
