Considering the phone was invented in 1876 and the mobile around 1980 it is surprising that it has taken so long before someone decided to throw it competitively.
The UK championship (held in August at Tooting Bec athletic track) has been running for two years and was set up to promote phone recycling. Current UK records are a phenomenal 92.3m (Chris Hughff) and 53.52m (Jan Singleton) in the woman's event.
Other European countries now seriously taking part in the sport include Germany, Holland, Denmark and even Ukraine
The Mobile phone throwing World championship however is held annually in Savonlinna, Finland. The current world record is 94.97m set in 2005.
