At the 62nd Annual International Jugglers Association Festival in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on July 13-19, hundreds will compete in juggling feats that test endurance, ability, and creativity.
Festival director Mike Sullivan says winning the gold medal is a great achievement for any juggler and often leads to whirlwind success.
Champs often get job offers pouring in from renowned acts like Cirque du Soleil and Barnum & Baileys Circus, and essentially become rockstars of the juggling world.
Sullivan explains, Winners get a lot of fame and notoriety among jugglers. Real luminaries have fans and even groupies.
However, since there arent big bucks to be made as a master juggler, Sullivan laments that a tossing champ will never quite be on par with athletes like Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
