Juggling boy goes to Las Vegas

Juggling boy goes to Las Vegas

An internet video of a Wigan schoolboy juggling led to him being invited to compete in a major competition in Las Vegas!

David taught himself to juggle, and was spotted on the video website YouTube by the president of the World Juggling Federation who contacted him directly.

The 14-year-old then travelled to America with his family and came eighth in the junior juggling section.

David caught the juggling bug after watching a video of tricks online.

He said: "I saw a video on YouTube of people juggling and it looked cool. I thought 'I could have a go at that'.

"My mates think it's really cool."

Limelight for David

His juggling tricks have already got him on a famous juice drink website.

But the next stop for the talented teen is the British Youngest Juggler of the Year award in April.
