  Canada rock, paper, scissors champs
Updated 30 October 2003, 15.53
Rock, paper, scissors final
A Canadian has won the world championships of rock, paper, scissors, beating a Brit.

More than 300 competitors, including a five-man team from Britain, travelled from all over the world for the champs held in Canada.

Rob Kreuger of Canada took the title of Rock Paper Scissors Champion of the World.

Rob won with rock-paper-paper, defeating Mark Rigaux's offering of three rocks.

British team
Guess where these competitors come from!

Serious game!

It might seem a playground game for you, but these people were serious and played strictly by the rules.

The rules say paper has to be flat and scissors vertical. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper and paper beats rock.

One competitor said he just sticks with scissors the whole way through.

The British team were dressed in overalls decorated with the Union Jack.
