Thousands of competitors from around the world have converged on Prague to compete for the Yo-Yo World Championship.

Players will spend the weekend competing in freestyle categories using up to five, yes five, yo-yos at a time.

They'll be judged on their style, accuracy, speed and precision.

Four-time world champion Hiroyuki Suzuki said that the competition is a great place to make friends.

Competitors are using some serious yo-yos, some are made from titanium with high speed ball bearings inside.

The ball bearings allow for spins to last much longer.

The Yo-Yo Championships date back to the 1930s.
