My back aches. I’m sweating. My bladder is sending out distress signals. I’ve been going full throttle for three hours, and have five hours to go, but I can’t slow down. Not when the stakes are so high: I’m representing my country among the best competitors on Earth, sandwiched between teams from Turkey and Bulgaria. I am competing in the equivalent of an Ironman triathlon for assembling little cardboard pieces. No, seriously. I’m representing Team USA at the World Jigsaw Puzzle Championship.

This is a great read, check it out.

It had never occurred to me that jigsaws could be a competitive sport, but I love the idea.

Yeah, I like it too. If they ever have this in England, I'll be going there to watch it.

In the meantime, you might like this jigsaw puzzle site. I've played loads of times and my favourite configuration is 100 piece classic. It's just the right amount of challenge to make it enjoyable without frustration.

If you register, you can even create a puzzle out of your own picture.
