On December 3rd and 4th, Moscow will host the sixth Russian Yo-yo Contest.
A very welcome addition this year is the Open International Division, which kicks off with a very strong line-up: world champions Marcus Koh (Singapore) and Kentaro Kimura (Japan) from Turning Point, Krisztian Kaluzsa (UK) and Petr Kavka (Czech Republic) from CLYW, Augie Fash, Ann Connolly (USA) and Vashek Kroutil (Czech Republic) from YoyoFactory, and Kohta Watanabe (Japan) from Duncan Crew will all compete in the new division, along with European champions Nandor Groger and David Molnar.
On the home front, YoyoFactory’s Victor Gravitsky will try to defend his title against an ever growing local competition. The Russian winner will receive a trip to the European Yo-yo Contest, to be held in January, in Prague. All divisions will be held for Russian players, including an Artistic Performance division.
In addition to the international guests, the Winter Aero-Yo Fest, featuring a range of juggling and skill toys, should make this a most excellent event!
