27 Mar Ryota Ogi Takes second place at the South Japan Yo-yo Contest!
Team Yoyorecreation member Ryota Ogi tookk home 2nd place at the South Japan Yo-yo contest held on 20th March 2017.
With Ryota’s goal being to take home the title, it was not surprising when he came 1st in the preliminary round.
However despite his domination of the preliminary round and also having a very clean opening sequence to his finals freestyle, Ryota missed a succession of difficult hooks which caused him to lose momentum and fall short of the title.
Ryota will be entering Japan Nationals in June as a regional runner-up. We hope to see Ryota hit all of the new tricks he attempted at SJ to improve on his excellent nationals routine last year which saw him place near the top.
