World Rubik's Games Championship 2003 (usually called World Championship 2003, abbreviated to WC2003, or WC03) was a speedcubing World Championship held at the Ontario Science Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was the first World Championship since WC1982 and the first World Championship of the modern speedcubing era. Since it took place before the creation of the WCA, it was retroactively declared an official competition.
