The European Yo-yo Championship is closing in and the competition level promises to be higher than ever.
Last week at the Hungarian Nationals, the Open division was dominated by the Czech team Slusny: 1st place went to Robert Kucera, followed by Duncan Crew’s Tomás Bubák and YoyoFactory’s Vashek Kroutil. On the local division, the winner was One Drop’s Vilmos Zoltán Kiss, 2nd place was Yoyojam’s Bálint Farkas and 3rd place went to Ákos Lizenbold.
Also worth noting on the European front is Plamek’s recent move to team One Drop, after Hspin’s team’s demise.
The Russian National Yo-yo Contest is also just around the corner, and YoyoFactory’s Victor Gravitsky will try to defend his title against an ever-growing competition. World Champion Marcus Koh will also attend Russian Nationals as a guest!
Next week, Italian players will also compete in their National Contest, with guests Augie Fash and Vashek Kroutil.
Stay tuned for EYYC coverage and news as the event approaches!
