Diabolo Championship

Diabolo Championship

I got to know about the Diabolo Championship at Atria Shopping Mall recently by chance. It was a one-day event, but I only managed to catch the first part – the under-twelves.

Diabolo, or Chinese yo-yo, is an old sport from China. It is a juggling prop that consists of an axle and two hourglass-shaped cups. The objective is to spin the diabolo on a string.

The children were spectacular. They managed to control at least two diabolos on the same string. One child even managed to control three of them!

It was great to see the children working hard at this – they seemed to enjoy keeping the old tradition alive. Let’s hope we can see more of these old sports in future.
