1a 1st Hiroyuki Suzuki
1a 2nd Christopher Chia
1a 3rd Darrell Mitchell
…Another installment of my current favorite friendly yoyo rivalry and I was not disappointed. Mickey is pushing himself and going for it. Chia showing some new moves and continuing to put his own mark on the contest style Mickey popularized. Darrell Mitchell is the people’s champ (check out those cheers!) for good reason: amazing and flashy big move tricks that focus on innovation and crowd-pleasing at the same dang time.
While I think the judge’s scoring is true and on point, Darrell’s performance is my favorite. In the end, a win for everybody and yoyoing contest at its best and most fun. Great job, Mickey, Christopher and Darrell!
