Who among us hasn’t spun a pen in our fingers when we are bored? It’s almost a requirement during tedious high school classes and long work meetings. Well, Japan has turned that pastime into a sport called – what else – pen-spinning.
This past Sunday, Japan crowned its first pen-spinning champion in 16-year-old Ryuki Omura. In the inaugural event, 276 hopefuls submitted videotapes of their maneuvers. Omura was one of 16 finalists who were chosen from that bunch. Curious to know what kind of moves expert pen-spinners are capable of?
