Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Studios Universal Orlando
The 2000 World Yo-Yo Contest is now over. There was lots of fun in too much sun for all.
We hope to post video clips and photographs of the event soon. Video footage will be posted at nick.com, under the Nick Gas section soon. Please look for it.
This event is scheduled to air on Nickelodeon on August 6th, and Nick GAS on August 8th. We are not sure that these will be identical coverage. We will let you know as we find out.
Also look for National Geographic's World Magazine. They will be doing major coverage of this event in the February 2001 issue.
