“The Worst” Wins Sand Sculpting Competition at Hampton Beach (Video)

Canadian sand sculptor Marc Lepire, whose last name means “The Worst,” took first place and the Sculptor’s Choice award on Saturday during the 11th annual Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Competition.

Lepire won $3,000 in prize money and secured his spot in this year’s World Championships in November, an honor the Canadian celebrated with several triumphant screams.

His creation, “Phase Shifter” (clink on link to see the image), featured a demonic figure manipulating the sand in front of him, reports Hampton-NorthamptonPatch.
