Only 3 die during 100 hour Korean Starcraft competition

The annual Korean Starcraft competition has ended after 100 hours with only 3 deaths.

Kim Dae Woo, a 26 year old man from Seoul has been crowned Starcraft champion after a non-stop 100 hour fight against 2000 other hopefuls.

After three challengers were found dead at the end of the tournament, organisers were quick to point out this is the lowest figure in the competitions 8 year history. The event was cut down to 100 hours after 19 people kicked it in the first year.

Kim says he’s delighted with his victory and can’t wait to collect his prize from the tournament sponsors. Both Marlboro and local beer company Cass have awarded the champion a year’s supply of their product.

    Damn. I thought this was real at first too. Glad nobody died. Sad that I don't have an interesting story to report on and link back to.
