Yo-Yoers Descend On Chino, California

CHINO, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chino, California, may be known as a prison town, but it’s also a yo-yoing Mecca.

That’s exactly what the city will become today (Oct. 3) and tomorrow (Oct. 4), when 50 of the country’s best yo- yoers come together to compete in the 16th Annual National Yo-Yo Championship.

Yo-yo spokesman Bob Malowney says contestants get to pick their best trick to wow the judges, who score based on difficulty, smoothness, and the number of tricks they can perform in three minutes.

Malowney says the sport has really taken off in recent years thanks to the Internet which makes it easier for people to find instructions for new tricks.

He explains, “Every kid in the world is capable of obtaining the many benefits yo-yoing offers.”

These benefits include improved hand-eye coordination and having a party trick ready at the next office get-together.
