The World Speedrunning Championship is championship within the I'm A Speedrunner community, established January 10, 2010. It is the oldest championship recognised by the I'm A Speedrunner Wiki, and is presented as being the most prestigious.
The goal of every I'm A Speedrunner tournament is to crown a champion; one competitor recognised as the most superior speedrunner of the day. To become a champion, one must outlast every single competitor in a given tournament and come first in the Grand Final race.
It is then the job of that champion to defend their title of World Speedrunning Championship in each subsequent tournament that they appear in. A championship changes hands when a new champion is crowned at the end of an I'm A Speedrunner tournament. The only champion to win two IAS tournaments is CrystalFissure who obtained the distinction after winning I'm A Speedrunner 7 and I'm A Speedrunner 8 consecutively. Although he has won two I'm A Speedrunner tournaments, this is recognised as a single reign as the tournaments he won were consecutive and this is seen as one unbroken reign.
The longest reigning champion was CrystalFissure with a total of 604 days who defeated Ratchet5, MuddyMaestro, Zaydskate and MrGamesendy in a Toy Story 2 race to Any% the game which was uploaded to I'm A Speedrunner 7 on October 1, 2012.
