Congratulations to Sean Wrona, our first Ultimate Typing Champion! During today’s UTC final round at SXSW Interactive, Wrona was simply EN FUEGO. He managed to type a 574-word text at a mind-blowing 163 words-per-minute. (The average professional adult types at about 40-50 words per minute.) Wrona captivated the audience in front of Das Keyboard’s SXSW booth with his blazing keyboard skills. He now heads back home to Ithaca a UTC typing champion, and $2,000 richer. Read some great hometown coverage of him in The Ithaca Journal.

A round of applause as well to the UTC runner-up, Nate Bowen, who takes home $500 for his speedy keyboard abilities. Nate was eager to get out and experience some Austin nightlife after taking his share of punishment in the final round. “Congrats to Sean … he was definitely quite intimidating, and is very worthy of the UTC crown,” Nate shared afterwards.
