2011 has been a stellar year for Harold Owens III. Seemingly out of no where, though we’ve had our eye on him for a while, he took the US contest season by storm. Garnishing quite a bit of attention with his high placing in every contest he entered, Harold joined the YoYoFactory Contest Team shortly before the World Championships.
And his performance at Worlds did not disappoint. Even though he barely missed finals, he became a true crowd favorite. After Worlds Harold had his sights set on one thing: US Nationals.
As he took the stage, he definitely “got his swagger back”. Flying through one of the most fluid, stylish freestyles of the day Harold took top honors: 1A US National Champion.
To commemorate his outstanding 2011 contest season YoYoFactory has created a special edition Catalyst, the same yo-yo he used to win Nationals. Available in 2 colors, these are already moving fast.
