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!
Yoyofficer’s Ilya Shaposhnikov put together a great look at this year’s Russian YoYoing Competition. There is some really good technical play coming out of the Russian scene, and has been for years. The Russian yoyo industry has had some problems finding stability, but there is loads of talent there…great to see a contest really bringing all that talent together!
The Perfect Elements crew brings us a good look behind-the-scenes of the recent Russian YoYoing Competition held in Moscow last weekend. Check out some burly play from the hangout room of the contest!
