One of the cornerstones of YoYoFactory is our team. You’d be hard pressed to find a more eclectic group of up-and-comers, veterans, future, and current champions. Their skill is undeniable.
Future Champions, Paul and Luis are focused and hungry any title they go for. With a 1-2 finish, their biggest competitor? Each other. You’d be hard pressed to find a more dynamic duo that push each other to succeed on and off the stage. Last year at the World Championships they showed what they were capable of. And this year they are on the top of the list for the top spot in the world.
The Veteran, Paul Han has accomplished the most winning BAC career in history. 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004 and 2006 were champion years at BAC for him. And when he wasn’t the top spot, he was still on the podium. 2012 brought yet another top 3 placing. 15 years of undeniable skills.
Current Champion, for Harold Owens III, 2011 was a stellar year. And he’s not planning on making 2012 any different. With a US National Title under his belt, he hit 2012 running with a very experimental California States freestyle. For BAC Harold took a new approach to trick development. Trying to strip down all the filler and concentrate on amazing trick composition. And it definitely showed. Next stop, the Worlds stage.
The Up-and-Comer, Kevin Nicholas is fast becoming the underdog of 2012. Breaking onto the US contest scene at PNWR earlier in the year, at Cal States we knew we wanted him on the team. And after his back breaking performance at BAC, we knew it was Contest Team material. His precision and unique approach has gained accolades from his peers, and a firm hold on earning a finals spot at Worlds this year.
