Harold Owens III took to the stage with confidence this year. Coming in at his traditional 2nd highest score of prelims, he was ready to show a whole new level of accuracy to the stage. When the dust settled on the stage Harold was standing proud with a 4th place finish. When asked as a former National Champion if he was disappointed with 4th he replied, “I couldn’t have asked for a better freestyle. I went as hard as I could and hit everything. No shame in that.” Spoken like a true Champion.

It is always amazing to see a yo-yo player come out of nowhere to make a name for themselves. Harold Owens III went from winning a couple of small local contests one year to taking the top spot at the USA National Yo-Yo Contest the next year. His smooth and fluid on stage presence have made him one of the “must-see” performances at every contest that he attends. When we started working together with Harold on an idea for a signature yo-yo, the designs looked different than anything that we had ever made before. The H.O.T. is one of the biggest and boldest YoYoFactory yo-yos ever released!
