Until about an hour ago I had no clue that there was a National Yo-Yo League in America. I knew there was some sort of a national championship because I’ve seen some videos before of yo-yo savants throwing it down on stage, but I’m still a bit shocked to find out there’s an entire league devoted to yo-yo.
Moving on, this dude shared this video earlier on Reddit’s r/videos. Evan Nagao claims that he started competitively yoyoing seven years ago with the ultimate goal of winning the U.S. National Yo-Yo Contest.
Evan Nagao saw his dream come true this year when he took home first place in the 1A division thanks to this ridiculous display of yo-yo sorcery.
I’m still not entirely clear what delineates the divisions in competitive yoyoing. I’m assuming that you have to accrue X amount of points in Y division before getting bumped up to the next division, but I’d like to think it’s like Karate. Where you have to perform certain tricks in front of Yo-Yo Masters in order to receive your next belt. If I was sitting on the board of Yo-Yo Jedis that’s how I’d be running things.
