Spintop wins IJA contest
« on: September 04, 2017, 11:08:12 PM »

I opened the last newsletter from IJA and the first story has this photo:

In June, the IRC [IJA Regional Competition] South America 2017 took place in Quito, Ecuador, featuring a diverse line-up of jugglers from Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Venezuela and Argentina.  This IRC had the widest variety of props in history, including hats, spinning tops, foot juggling, classic circus juggling, contact juggling, synchronized ball juggling, poi and dapos (six-pointed star carpets).  The props were diverse, and the audience was highly entertained. The event was hosted at the World Juggling Day celebration put on by Compañía Circómico.  The medalists are as follows:
Gold: Jader Oswaldo Mona Sanchez of Colombia - Spinning Top
Silver: Nebulosa Estelar featuring Alvaro Soto y Santiago Vega of Ecuador - Partner Hats and Balls
Bronze: Lebid Yobany Guerrero Arevalo of Colombia - Classic Circus Juggling

I wonder if Don Macizo was a judge  ;D

Hopefully I'll meet Jader next month in Colombia . . .
