Yes, you absolutely read that right, there is a competition that revolves around Excel work-sheets.

Microsoft Excel may be something that has become akin to keeping track of expenses, but June 8 saw the first ever Microsoft Excel Financial Modeling World Cup. 

Taking part in the first ever competition were Andrew Ngai of the UK, Michael Jarman of Canada, Stepganie Annerose of the USA and Jason Webber of South Africa. Also taking part was John Lim of Australia, Gabriela Stroj of Poland, Anup Argawal of India and Siang Tan from Malaysia.

When the competition began, there was a small sample size for trying to work out who would win. After all, the competition itself was hardly widely-known, with the Esport of Microsoft Excel not one that will be mentioned in the same breath as the FIFA World Cup, for example. 

However, the competition saw all contestants given a case study. They then had to do revenue and production cost modeling using Excel, including sales, shipping and a summary of their models. 

After 40 minutes of intense battling, Canda's Michael Jarman announced himself as the Microsoft Excel champion. 

If you are still left asking how this is a sport, it is because there is an element of competition in it. This is achieved through asking the competitors to create a complete financial plan as quickly as possible. 

With so many different ways to create a spreadsheet due to the range of calculation commands, competitiors were forced to really think about how they would create their spreadhseet. The person that worked out the shortest and quickest way to create their plan was crowned the champion.
