The video does a nice job of highlighting the corkscrew contest!

Netflix Worlds Cleveland 2019
« Reply #136 on: November 17, 2020, 12:19:50 PM »

Just today Netflix put out a documentary about worlds 2019 under the series: We are the Champions. Other sports highlighted in the series are Cheese Rolling, Chili Eating, Fantasy Hair Styling, Dog Dancing and Frog Jumping  :P

The show is only about 1A and focuses on 3 players: Evan Nagao, Keiran Cooper and Betty Gallegos. It's more drama than documentary, so it might disappoint some that may want a more in-depth look at the yo-yo world. If you let that go, it has high production value and is very enjoyable (but the overly dramatic voice-over got into my nerves). I also like Betty a lot, so I'm very happy she was chosen.

I couldn't see any tops but ITSA's logo is clearly visible. Several top players appear just one minute into it, like Beau, Schulte, Dale and, to my great surprise, myself! But what's really incredible is that I was playing a yo-yo!  :o  :o  :o ;D
