The 2017 National Yo-Yo Contest has officially come to a close in Chico, California. The final results have yet to be posted, but folks on social media wasted no time to announce the winners for 1A and 5A. Thank you for your service, you enthusiastically unhinged superfans, you. Your information is most appreciated.
The national champ for 1A is Evan Nagao, and 5A goes to Joshua Yee. Be sure to constantly refresh the entirety of YouTube for HQ uploads of their performances. Evan’s, in particular, was rather mindblowing when viewed via the Livestream.
Congrats to you both!
UPDATE: YoYoFactory has put Evan Nagao’s signature throw, the Edge, on sale! Both a great time and reason to scoop one up.
UPDATE: The Chicoer, a California news source, has reported that the US Nationals will take place in Chicago next year. It will also be held in the summertime, as to better accommodate school schedules for players and fans alike.
