All Female Final Match
 
2008 Winner
 

Wins First Ever All-Female Championship Final Match with a Dramatic Throw of Scissors Beating Paper to win $10,000 Grand Prize

 
Local RPS talent prevailed when Monica Martinez, a jewelry store owner from Toronto who won match after match to eventually seize the title and the $10,000 grand prize.

On Saturday night, Monica battled for more than five hours with spirited seasoned RPS veterans spanning all parts of Canada and the US, and country champs and competitors from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, Norway, and Argentina.
"We are honoured to award Monica the title of 2008 Yahoo! Rock Paper Scissors World Champion," says Graham Walker, Events Chairman, World RPS Society. "A determined and focused competitor, Monica showed the stamina and discipline it takes to win this title. Now she is a World Champion."
This year, more than 700 players and spectators descended on Toronto's Steam Whistle brewery on Saturday night for the world's premier RPS event. It was a spirited night of sporting subculture competition featuring outrageous costumes, team jerseys, face paint, and a Street RPS competition (separate from the sanctioned main event).
"We applaud the enthusiasm and sportsmanship showed by all the competitors," says Dave Soyka, Marketing Manager at Yahoo! Canada . "Now it's Monica's time to shine as the new reigning Yahoo! RPS World Champion."
The prize for second place was $1,500, with the third prize winner going home with $500. Sarah Harris of Burlington, Ontario won the EYE Weekly Street RPS competition and took home $1,000.

LogoGetting down to the wire for the 2008 Yahoo! RPS World Championships . Players are starting to make their way into town, media outlets are ringing the Worldrps offices on a regular basis looking to get access. But this Saturday October 25th is what it is all about. $13,000.00 in prize money and what ex-champion Peter Lovering (2002) called the 'biggest slice of pizza".

Word to the wise: A large US based TV station has contacted us about having the champion flown down to New York City for a special appearance right after the event. So, if being interviewed about how great you are on National US television has ever been a dream of yours then winning the Yahoo RPS World Championship title could be your ticket to your 15 minutes of fame!
