Chris Mikulin is going to cry when he sees this.
Canada Nationals is coming up this weekend, August 17th, and it looks like there will be an all-star roster of talent in attendance. The event is being organized and judged by CLYW owner Chris Mikulin, and other judges include Matthew Fernandez (Box), Richard Buchholz, and Daniel Dietz (Yomega). The contest is being held at the West Edmonton Mall, which is the largest mall in North America.
In attendance will be a ton of players looking for a shot at a seeded position in the finals in next year’s World YoYo Contest, including Harrison Lee (CLYW), Luckey Li (King Yo Star), and Charles Haycock (CLYW). Defending Canadian National Champion Alexis JV will not be attending, leaving the top honors up for grabs by a new player!
International visitors include Ann Connolly (YoYoFactory), JohnBot (CLYW), and Ky Zizan (Werrd), who will be doing a demo of new new Double Dragon tricks. Canadian Nationals is shaping up to be an amazing event!
David Ung was awesome enough to put together this great clip video showcase of the Fixed Axle Throwdown from the 2012 World YoYo Contest. Be sure to check out Ed Haponik’s amazing kendo catch at 1:52.
