The 2020 World Sign Spinning Championship

Every year the World Sign Spinning Championship gets bigger and better, this year was no exception. Fremont Street was alive with energy in downtown Las Vegas as some 60 of the best sign spinners from all over the world would battle it out for the title the 2020 World Sign Spinning Champion. Drawing inspiration from Martial Arts, Break Dancing, Skate Boarding and a great many other extreme sports and performance arts; sign spinner’s would captivate the crowds with a display of some of the most mind blowing sign spinning maneuvers ever seen.

Three rounds and 60 spinners total, each round spinners would be eliminated until a champion would be crowned. In the first round, competitors would have only 30 seconds to stand out from the rest of the spinners and only 25 would qualify and move on to the second round. This year was the most impressive first round to date as no one was holding back, a half point could be the difference in advancing or going home. In the round two, Veteran sign spinners, former champions, and new faces were playing for keeps and unleashed everything they had for their chance to make it to the final round. Many early qualifiers would get bumped out by spinners marginally improving their scores in the second heat, it was absolute madness. This year was even harder to judge than the last; many wouldn’t be envious to be in their shoes.
