Toronto will host the competition, where entrants will aim to break the world record.

Finland has mobile phone throwing championships, so why not Canada?

Canadian network Mobilicity is taking the infamous 'sport' of mobile phone flinging to Toronto with the 1st Annual Canadian Mobile Phone Throwing Championship on Saturday, October 13th.

Inspired by the Finnish event, the Canadian contest will take place during half time of a football game between the Varsity Blues and the York Lions.

Entrants will attempt to break the 101.46-metre-world-record-throw and win $5,000 and a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone with a year of Mobilicity’s unlimited data, talk and text service.

The second and third-place finalists each win a phone with Mobilicity’s unlimited service.
