Grannec claims FIWC crown and $20000
Not bad for a few games of FIFA.
Bruce Grannec won the 2013 FIFA Interactive World Cup (FIWC) last night in dramatic fashion and won $20,000 in the process. The Frenchman saw off the challenge of Mexico’s Andrei Torres Vivero with a 1-0 win in the final.

It wasn’t all plain sailing for Grannec and several competitors ran him close. He had to rely on the characteristics of his nickname, “The Machine,” in order to deal with the pressure heaped on during day 3 of the tournament. He beat August Rosenmeier 1-0 after extra time, pipped Abdulaziz Alshehri on penalties and held his nerve to win the final in regular time.

2.5 million people entered the FIWC this year in a series of fiercely contested online qualification seasons. This field was eventually narrowed down to 21 grand finalists who faced off in Madrid. Grannec managed to crack a grin at the trophy presentation as he becomes just the second player to win the long-running tournament for a second time. He will now travel to the FIFA Ballon d’Or 2013 where he will mingle with some of the world’s biggest stars, and may get to show them a thing or two about the videogame in the meantime.
