Mexico is no doubt quickly becoming a hot country in the yo-yo scene, and clearly ahead of the pack are YoyoFactory’s duo Luis Enrique and Paul Kerbel, who took first and second place at Mexico’s Winter contest, held last month.
While Paul has been competing internationally for a couple of years, Luis Enrique hit fast and hard this year, taking not only the Winter contest, but also the Summer contest in July and an impressive 5th place at this year’s World Yo-yo Contest. Paul comes from a win at this year’s Mexican national contest, the Triple Crown of Yoyo‘s East Coast Classic title, and a very respectable 7th place at the World Yo-yo Contest.
As demonstrated by Singapore’s recent success, the key to developing highly successful players may be a strong local competition scene, and that’s exactly what we see in Mexico right now. We look forward to seeing more of those guys!
