There's A World Championships For Excel Spreadsheets

If you thought Mr. Puniverse was the ultimate competition for nerds; think again.

Presenting the World Championship of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

You know that annoying program everyone lies about being "proficient" in on their resume? Yeah, that.

Turns out theirs a competition to find the world's most proficient Microsoft Excel-er, and the prize is $10,000 cash money.

This year's tournament, held in Anaheim, California was taken out by 17-year-old American, John Dumoulin.

Dumoulin apparently honed his Excel skills while taking IT classes at school.

“Some of the foreign countries, they’ve been training for hours and hours and hours on end,” Dumoulin said.

“When you first meet the international students, everyone’s friendly, but when they find out you’re competing against them in the same category, they get this fire in their eyes. They want to win.”

There's no news on whether Fox Sports is looking into picking up the broadcast rights for next year's championships.
