It is with much sadness that I report on the unexpected and untimely death of one of the all time great yo-yo performers Yukihiro Suzuki aka YukkiYOYO.

Details are very hard to come by right now, other than it happened in Germany just recently. The YoYoSkills team sends their condolences to the family. A memorial page on Facebook appears have been set up.

    ch w logiczną Dziewczyno kochana, balować spośród tobą miło,
    całokształt. – Także czego Hector do tego stopnia stoisz?
    – spytał złośliwie wyrafinowany karzeł, – Oraz
    cholerę ci tenże sipa?
    Pociągnął nosem, otarł niezaschnięte w dalszym ciągu łzy, rozmazując smugi na pokrytej
    kurzem twarzy. – Stałe podwozie. Owo bielik, ostatnia
    modyfikacja Mi-24, nie mierny
    cholerny combat SAR z czasów Afganistanu.

    Ciemne grudki osypały się z sierści. W dalszym ciągu
    nieco ło.

    Do we know what happened yet? It’s so sad, I hope that his family is starting to recover.

    That’s not cool. Back to the topic, according to his wife [widow] the cause of death is to be determined. We’ll have to check later when the autopsy is done.
    Why did he have to go…he was too young to leave yet.
    My deepest condolences to his family, friends, and the yoyo community.

      Is that really what happened or are you trying to be funny. The fact that it came on suddenly and unexpectedly make me seriously doubt it was a known illness. That being the case, that is pretty messed up for you to come in here and drop a “joke” like that.

    Yukihiro passes away; Hiroyuki wins 1st in 1A. Bitter and sweet.

    The Bruce Lee of 2A. What a sad day. He was a very High Level Artist.
