2013 National 3A Champion Alex Hattori got a great write-up in the Los Angeles Times…that’s a HUGE bit of press for a really deserving player. Excerpt below!
He doesn’t have to put a spin on what he does. Alex Hattori’s hobby does that automatically.
At the age of 15, the Torrance youth has become the yo-yo king.
He has his own sponsor, his own trading cards and his own line of yo-yos — the “C-Force” and the “Collid3r” — which the YoYoJam Co. sells for $57 and $107.
And now, after stiff competition at the yo-yo nationals in the Northern California town of Chico, he has been crowned the top double yo-yo player in the nation.
“I yo-yo everywhere I go. At the supermarket. In the classroom. When my mom is talking to me,” he said.
Alex picked up his first yo-yo four years ago when a group of his middle school friends sneaked some on campus and were playing with them at lunchtime.
Since then, his own yo-yo career has had its ups and downs — although for the most part it’s been on a steady ascent.
By the time he was 12, his skills earned him the title of America’s junior national yo-yo champion. In 2011 he won several regional yo-yo contests and had his name inscribed on a permanent trophy that honors this country’s “most inspirational player” in the sport.
