Last August I posted the mind-bending video of Jensen Kimmitt who completely blew away the crowd and judges alike with his routine. So when I saw this year’s champion – Shinji Saito – rock the crowd with his lightning-fast, techno themed dual yo-yo routine I posted it right away.
Saito definitely took a different approach favoring flamboyance over nuance but was equally effective in wowing the audience.
