More Than a Toy: Check Out the Yo-Yo Skills of These 2 People
One thing I was never able to master as a kid was the yo-yo. I could never figure out the "wrist snap" to bring it back upward.
Such is not the case for 22-year-old Evan Nagao who just won the 2018 US National Yo-Yo Championship. He performed his quick hand magic with Lynyrd Skynyrd's 70 rock anthem "Freebird" providing the musical backdrop for his performance.
Nagao previously performed to the song when he won the 2017 US National Yo-Yo Championship. Maybe "Freebird" is his good luck charm?
Nagao now heads to Shanghai China in August for the World Yo-Yo Championship.
