We would like to express our sincere thanks to Chen Yang for his cooperation.

Yo-Yo Setting & Maintenance

Other Tips:
Adjust the condition of the string and bearings to the best condition before the competition. I changed new pads a week in advance of the contest, and strictly controlled the condition of the pads on each yo-yo to achieve the best condition for the freestyle!
During practice, try to keep your setting—string, bearing, lights, and clothing—consistent with the setting in the competition.

Message to fans

“Ryuichi Sakamoto once said, ‘The music that people will still listen after 100 years is what I want to make.’ The yo-yo performance that people will still want to watch after 10 years is what I want to show. I want to leave something classic and timeless on this stage, something beyond competition, champion and ranking. I think I have achieved my intention. If you feel inspired and moved by my performance, it’s my honor.”
