String Wizard: The 2017 World Yoyo Champion's Winning Routine

August 18, 2017

This is a video of 2017 World Yoyo Champion Shu Takada's winning routine. It is most impressive. Yoyos can actually come back to you?! That's news to me. "You're an idiot." That is not news to me. Half the tricks this guy performs border on sorcery, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn he's wearing an Amulet Of Return around his neck. "What the hell are you talking about?" Tsk tsk -- sounds like somebody's been skipping their magic artifact class this semester. I'm telling Professor Snape. "Snape's dead." I'm only on book three!

Keep going for the full video.

    Holy friggin' that asian was awesome! Also, I watched a second time at 0.75 speed, it helps. XD

    Why do women have a separate division in the International Yo-Yo Competition? Is there something that makes one gender particularly advantaged over the other when it comes to yo-yoing?

  • Bling Nye

    Institutionalized patriarchal sexism dating back to at least the ancient Greeks when athletes had to compete in the nude to assure no woman could compete (and possibly beat a male), which has subsequently engendered a sociological norm in which sexes are still segregated in all "athletic" competitions simply "becuz wimmins."

    That, or, I dunno, demtiddies be gettin' in th' way, yo.

    If a woman tried to compete in a Yo-Yo competition against a man I would totally throw up. Everyone knows that men are strong and hold all the intelligence while woman are weak, insecure, and spend their lifetimes worrying about gaining weight from child birth.=)

    Hubree: You're a tiny perfect kitten athlete!!=)=)=)
    Irina: I would totally beat you at yo-yo-ing with two yo-yo's swinging under my armpit.=)
