Diabolo article on CCTV
« on: October 16, 2006, 12:20:27 am »
This was posted on a yo-yoing blog a couple of days ago. CCTV (a chinese-oriented station) aparantly did a short profile of an older diabolo player. Not super-long, but still makes for interesting reading:

I did notice that they seem to have all of their episodes online. Judging from one of the screen captures, this was Culture Express. And the transcript is dated 9-18-06. They didn't mention "Kongzhu" in the preview portion, but perhaps it is still part of that episode. Or it might be in one of the episodes from a couple of days earlier. If someone has the time to watch through some of these, it'd be awesome to see the actual video for it.

"kong zhu" is the way chinese yoyo is said in chinese, it's also call "che ling".  CCTV is China Central Television.  They also said that Mr. Liu might be one of the diabolists in the opening cermony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
