Forty contestants competed to be the best yoyo-er in Georgia on Saturday at the Push Push theatre. In the freestyle competition, contestants had 2 minutes to perform their routine and were awarded positive points for advanced level tricks or trick elements performed successfully. Points were deducted for technical errors.

I was there to take photos, but decided that the sport is much better understood through video, so I filmed Mark Montgomery, who was awarded first place in the world yoyo contest in 2003, doing a demo for the crowd.
