Did you know one of the world champion yo-yoers is a North Texas local?


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back Monday at 1 p.m. for another one.

Two years ago, we told you about the World Yo-Yo Contest. Did you know one of the world champions is a North Texas local? Miguel Correa of Garland, and a graduate of SMU, is officially the 6th best yo-yoer as of 2011, and he was the #2 World Yo-Yo Champion in 2009. He also placed 1st nationally in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
