Harold Owens III knows about going for the win. 2011 was full of top placings across the country. Culminating with his 1st place win at the US National Yo-Yo Contest, Harold has his eye on the prize for 2012… He’s going FOR THE WIN.
After his stellar win at 2011 US Nationals, Harold Owens III is ready for 2012.

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.
