Videos are finally up from the 2017 Russian Yoyoing Competition, and looks like they were worth the wait. The scene in Russia has gone through a pretty dramatic downturn, with them losing nearly all of their “casual” player base in a very short time period. It was a pretty typical boom-to-crash scenario, but without a large retained player base afterwards to keep it sustainable. Luckily the players who have remained are all pretty amazing, and there is still a TON of talent there to inspire the next generation of Russian players. Check out the winners from this December 2017 contest!
