Last week the European Yo-Yo Contest in Budapest drew to a close, here are the results for the top 3 in each division!
1st Place – Carlos Braun
2nd Place – Jan Hlinka
3rd Place – Vilmos Zoltan Kiss
Carlos gave a fantastic performance as you can see above, an enormous improvement from 13th place he achieved in 2013. This is the first European 1A victory for Germany.
1st Place – Dave Geigle
2nd Place – Matyas Racek
3rd Place – Dominique Vionnet
Once again Dave Geigle from Germany unsurprisingly takes the gold for the 5th year in a row!
1st Place – Michal Jasko
2nd Place – Stepan Kosintzev
3rd Place – Stephen Langley
The third victory for Michal jasko in 3A, although there wasn't a lot in it this time around. An unfortunate change mid way through but still managed to cling on to the win.
1st Place – Quentin Godet
2nd Place – Lorenzo Sabatini
3rd Place – Groger Nandor
Easily one of the highlights of the whole contest, Quentin Godet from France took the win from the Italian powerhouse Lorenzo Sabatini with this fantastic performance.
1st Place – David Molnar
2nd Place – Dániel Budai
3rd Place – Petr Kavka
European contest machine David Molnar dominated this division and took back the 5A title after 2 years with this routine, a well deserved win for Hungary.
After my 5th year at this event it is safe to say it never disappoints, but two things stick out in my mind more than anything, so firstly...
Matt Gallacher is the UK 5A national champion and has been for the last two years, it is safe to say that he has stepped up his game by narrowly missing out on top 3 in one of the most competitive categories. Blinder.
But by far the most impressive was from Mexico's own Paul Kerbel...
We got to witness this delight in the 1A Open division proving that Paul is undoubtedly a HUGE threat for 1A at the World Yo-Yo Contest in Prague this summer.
