Americans can rest easy knowing the world's top yo-yo prize is back in their proverbial trophy case.
Gentry Stein, an 18-year-old from Chico, Calif., came out on top in the 2014 World Yo-Yo Contest‘s 1A division. The routine that Stein performed to win the competition in Prague has already gone viral on YouTube, racking up a quarter of a million views in a matter of days:
As you can see, the activity has changed quite a bit since 1932, when the first World Yo-Yo Contest was held. Now, the competitors are practically performers, and Stein uses a techno beat to accompany his routine.
Stein, who finished in third place in 2011, is the first American to win the contest's top division since 2008.
