World on a string


Fun: Here's a clip of Andrew Maider, a 16 year old from Clifton Park, competing at the World YoYo Contest in Prague earlier this month. Maider finished 17th -- in the world -- in the highest competition class.

Here's a profile of Maider by TWCN's Geoff Reddick.

And a bio blurb from his page at his yo yo team's site:

Andrew Maider is the definition of new school. He's got the flow, the flair, the raw talent, the personality, and the passion to make him his own full package. In a very short time Andrew has risen to the top of the game as a creative innovator and a national competitor. His performances will have you in an awing anticipation as he pulls out banger upon banger with a seemingly infinite amount of energy.

There are a few more clips after the jump that have a closer look at some of Maider's yo yo work.
