It should come to no surprise that the YoYoFactory Team does a lot of traveling. On any given weekend we have members attending contests, doing trade shows, touring, teaching and promoting Yo-Yo literally around the world. To give you a little glimpse into where we’re at this weekend, we put together a little report:

 

Ann is no stranger to travel. Over the last few years she’s become quite a jetsetter, hitting Japan, China, Russia, Australia and all over the USA on tour. Her current trip takes her to the London for a few days, then this weekend Ann makes an appearance at a Toy show in Japan as the special guest. From Japan she’ll be heading to Prague. Then onto a whirlwind European tour. Poland and France among others.

Jason Lee is in transit between the Middle East (Iran was the last place he touched down) and Europe. Pictured below, Jason is standing at the edge of a perpetually burning gas crater. Berlin for a bit, then to Prague to meet up with Ann and the SLUSNY crew. Where to after that? Only Jason knows.

State-side US National Champ Patrick Borgerding took 1st at Midwest Regionals, then headed to Chicago for some sight seeing and inspiration.

 

Here at the YoYoFactory Office in Arizona, Tyler Severance just booked his tickets South Central Reagionals in Denver, CO. And everyone is finalizing travel plans to Worlds.

We also have some special guests in the office. Former US National Champ Harold Owens III is in town for an extended stay. Sharpening his demonstrating skills with the awesome summer programs Tyler is running here, and fine tuning his Worlds freestyle. He’s got to make it through all the prelims AND get a final routine down. The peace and quite of the desert is helping him focus.

Along with Harold, we also had a surprise visit from 2x time World Champion Eiji Okuyama all the way from Japan. He and Harold made the trek up to the Grand Canyon to see the sights and get some cool photos.

Yo-Yo is one of the most evolving sports in the world. Things move so fast that the competitors are defining the rules. In an unprecedented turn of events, the 2013 Bay Area Classic was host to the first tie in a freestyle division. Watching both Gentry and Luis, you’d be hard pressed to find a definitive winner. As The World Championships gets closer, what these 2 will bring to the stage is on everyones mind.

Coming in 3rd… or is it 2nd?… Mexico National Champion, Paul Kerbel. After Worlds last year his name was at the end of everyones recap. The 2013 Session has shown Paul as a true competitor for a World title. With a National title already under his belt, he’s got a spot in the final round which gives him a lot of breathing room. At BAC, he was a big crowd favorite and judging by the routine, you can see why!
