An action-packed weekend approaches quickly!
In Japan, one of the country’s oldest regional contests, West Japan will take place in Osaka. Plenty of well known names are expected, including Tatsuya Fujisaka, Ryosuke Iwasaka, Ryo Yamashita, Ryusei Saito, Taichiro Higashi, and Kazuaki Sugimura. A certain “Jyon Ando” is listed among the 58 1A players, and it remains to be seen if that’s the legendary John Ando himself!
Live transmission is planned on Ustream!
In Europe, the attention is turned to Poland, running the eleventh edition of its national contest. Poland’s old and new talents will meet again after an excellent show earlier this year at the European Yo-yo Contest. European Champion Grzegorz Wojcik, from One Drop, and YoyoFactory’s Marcin Drzewiecki and Mateusz Ganc are no doubt the favorites there.
Stay tuned, as we’ll be back with contest updates throughout the weekend!
