Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic the 2020 edition of the Spintop World Contest has turned “virtual”.
Divided in two divisions, one for the traditional spinning top play and one for the more modern spintop play.
As such, the contest has been voted from 3min raw videos uploaded by players from all around the world by 8 judges selecting 10 finalists for each division.
Then, each finalist may vote for his 5 best videos (excluding himself of course).
Full results (with links to videos) can be found here.
A Tricks’ ladder has as well been organised in the same “video” way…
Full rules can be found on the official ITSA dedicated page. The full competitor list, in the same manner has its own page with links to their proposed video.
