His 3 low looks super stable and that sun was really quick and violent but still amazingly cool. His wrap acceleration looks a bit strange though, it starts like yabe's and then ends like Baptistes....sort of.

And now it seems that every oriental in the world can do the splits. At one point i really wanted to learn it so i tried and streched daily for weeks. Then i pulled a muscle in my leg and couldn't walk for 2 days... so i stopped!

ok, first of all, it's incorrect to refer to people as "oriental". only inanimate objects, such as furniture or artwork, can be correctly referred to as "oriental". it's considered rude to refer to anyone as oriental, kind of like calling a Japanese person a "jap". it's not officially vulgar, but it is agreed upon that it is a rude (and outdated) term and should not be used to refer to human beings.

anyway, enough grammar lessons...i'd just like to point out that doing the splits isnt really something you can just stretch for a few weeks and do. if you havent kept your body in proper shape all your life (or your body just isnt inclined to do it), it's going to be tough. not to mention if you're not doing the proper stretches in a proper regimen, you may have been not helping your body out at all.

what im trying to say is, it's possible for any young and fit person to do the splits (im going to assume that you're young enough for this, and your body is "normal"), it just takes proper training, and time.

About the "oriental" thing, I don't mind it, because the term Asian is just too large.  All very subjective, and I don't mind it.  Besides, hard to know where we are from, we all look the same  :wink:  (respectfully submitted).

Splits are hard, and yep, some people are physically incapable of doing it, it's just something you find out.  I like how it steals a bit of Frebourg's thunder.  What I'm impressed with is how he keeps control of the shuffle when it's an inch off of the ground.  And he's not even that tall, which makes it even more difficult (higher size - diabolo size ratio).

I do want to see what makes him so awesome.  Is it he's just very solid with his tricks?  Or does he have some double-hard moves in his belt?  Would like to see more.

Sorry gonna correct you here anyone can achieve front splits it just takes time, middle splits are a completely different story though.

As for william good and all but maybe a little overhyped?

his style was very different. he has solid three stuff, but not much past what you saw in the video, and three high he can do a pirrouette and 441 well (all I saw him do with high), with one, hes got cool infinite suicide stuff (I think it was his best overall, and was really very impressive), and some fast body moves, but they are nothing compared to what the french guys do. He's got great style, and is very much geared to performance; not a whole lot past what he has consistent or is working on for a new routine. Great performer though. I think Yabe would have won with more preparation and if he wasn't sick, but William definitely deserved it. And I don't think anyone can match his jumprope skills, they were by far faster and smoother than I've seen anyone do. And I'm serious when I say that.

He's like... REALLY fast and amazing. He did stuff no one expected, it was fast, dropless, amazing, technical, and over all he's a great performer.

Fredo? I guess (by the similarity in the name, and the fact you are German) that you were the guy at Daan's over the weekend?

I believe, as i dont recall seeing any other camera set up, that everyone in that room were the only other people (other than WJF attendants) who have seen William's routine. I hope you feel special  :wink:
