March 11th will be an action-packed Sunday for yoyoing!
In Mexico, the 7th National Yo-yo Contest will put YoyoFactory’s extraordinary duo Paul Kerbel and Luis Enrique against each other again for the title. With expressive results at last year’s World Yo-yo Contest (5th for Luis Enrique, 7th for Kerbel), and Triple Crown (1st place for Kerbel), Mexico is quickly becoming a major force in international yoyoing!
The contest will be held in Plaza Satelite, Mexico City, and will also features guests Paul Yath, Augie Fash, and Tyler Severance.
In Japan, the South Japan regional contest will take place in Fukuoka, featuring big names such as former World Champions Takuma Inoue (5A) and Minato Furuta (3A). In 1A, Kengo Kido, Shinya Azuma, and last year’s winner Akitoshi Tokubuchi are some of the names to keep an eye on!
We’ll be back with contest results as they become available!
