YoYoNews has full results and scoring breakdowns for the 3A Division of the 2017 World YoYo Contest. Congratulations to 2017 World YoYo Champion Hajime Miura!
Check out full results for Prelims in all divisions at the 2017 World YoYo Contest in Iceland!
Check out the latest hotness from John Wolfe and Ky Zizan and a wall of black canvas and some pretty good yoyos.

Philip White is the 2016 National 4A Champion, and his brother Stuart is a National Finalist in both the 3A and 4A divisions. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire
the A-Team the White brothers.
Great news for all of you attending the Asia Pacific Yo-yo Championships this week in Singapore! The 44FESTA crew will be holding a Triple A Throwdown during the after-party on July 3rd!
The Triple A Throwdown is an almost mythical post-contest tradition, part of the division’s unique culture, with its roots going back over 10 years ago. As a master of both 3A and ducks, we feel that Masanobu Iwata is uniquely suited to host the event for the Asian community!
The crew at 44FESTA was also busy a couple of weeks ago, holding yet another edition of their own event.
44FESTA vol. 18 was held on June 19th, and this time the offstring relay mini-contest had a sweet twist: 403YOYOCLUB in Sendai competed against the 44FESTA teams over Facetime!
Pictured above is Team Seki, winners of the mini-contest, with the Sendai crew sending their regards.
The freestyle contest also had something new: judges provided commentary and advice for the contestants on how to improve their freestyles. We expect to see some substantial improvement among the 44FESTA freestylers in the coming contests!
And speaking of improvement, the big winner of this edition was surprisingly not one of the several sponsored players competing; instead, Tomoki Toyama took home the trophy finishing ahead of the pack!
Check out all freestyle videos here.
Remember to attend the Triple A Throwdown this weekend in Singapore, and the upcoming 44FESTA 3rd Anniversary to be held on August 6th!
See you next time!
Happy birthday to the always amazing Hank Freeman! And to celebrate we’ve got a brand new video from everyone’s favorite 3A player who isn’t Hajime. Hank is one of those rare talents who came up in the late-90s yoyo boom and then just…kept going. He started off as a strong 2A player, then moved into 3A and became a 3-time World YoYo Champion at an age when most players have long since stopped competing…and the last two years he’s still placed Top 3 in the 3A division. Hank Freeman is the player we should all aspire to be…talented, humble, funny, steady, and leaving Ohio to live in Prague just for the hell of it.
Happy birthday, brother. Thanks for all the years of amazing tricks!
Yoyo used is the 44RPM Rhythm.
Two of the best yoyo players in the world throwing down on a bi-metal yoyo that’s become a Turning Point team favorite?
All. Day. Long.
Yoyo used is the Turning Point Anubis.
The results are in, and the United Kingdom’s Stephen Langley is the new European 3A Division Champion! Check out the full results and scoring breakdowns below. Videos coming soon!
The folks at C3yoyodesign are raging in to 2016 with a pile of great tricks from Sora Ishikawa! Sora is such an amazing talent, and a great fit for the C3yoyodesign team…so glad he found a home there. In this new video he treats us to some stellar 5A, and some crazy 5A/3A hybrid tricks that had jumping out of my seat. Hell yeah, Sora!
In a perfect world, we would get new videos from Donald Hodgkinson on the regular. But maybe it’s their scarcity that helps make them so good. Check out a fresh blast of 3A from Hodgy Beatz. (I’m sorry I called you that. But I’m not.)
2015 Japan National 3A champion Tomoya Kurita is warming up some Turning Point yoyos in preparation for the World YoYo Contest, and he’s looking really damn good.
Yoyo used is the Turning Point Palpitation.
YoYoSkeel dropped a new promo video featuring 3A player Thawhir Iqbal dropping some nasty tricks. Always great to see more good tricks coming from the long-running scene in Malaysia!
