Colombia plays tops compilation
« on: July 26, 2013, 09:08:29 AM »

Somebody edited a nice video with clips of different Colombian styles of play. There is a larger variety of traditional tops in Colombia that I had realized.

Colombia juega al trompo

Of the players with plastic tops we already know several.  But I didn't know Daniel Valderrama, who with that hair I think looks like the Colombian version of Huitzi  :D  At 1:32 he does a very nice juggling move.

I'm behind on some of the videos here because I normally check the site on my lunch breaks. I'll have to take a look tonight when I get home.

I might be able to pull that one off!  I need to work on my kickup a bit.   :D

And Dale Oliver said no one would ever juggle tops!  I never said anything but secretly I had some other ideas.

If you noticed that Esteban Jaramillo was left-handed at 1:00 before watching his boomerang at about 1:30, I am impressed.  Only a top player would pick up that fact from the direction of the precession.
