3:39 min

Tommy Eriksson took home gold in the first Swedish Championship in the classic arcade game Pac-Man at the Retro Games fair in Stockholm on Sunday.

"I practiced the whole night by playing on my own arcade Pac-Man game," Eriksson told Radio Sweden about his preparations. His winning score was 47 920.

He tells Radio Sweden that he is keeping his fingers crossed that at next year's Retro Games fair, they will introduce a Space Invaders championship, otherwise he'll organise a championship in that game himself.

Pac-Man started in Japan, and was first released in 1980.
