ORLANDO, Fla., July 29 (UPI) -- A Utah man set to be inducted into the Yo-Yo Hall of Fame said his proudest moment as a master yo-yo man was performing with the Smothers Brothers.

"I can't imagine doing anything else," World yo-yo champion Dale Myrberg told the Salt Lake City Deseret Morning News. "I've collected over 3,000 yo-yos and think the sport is absolutely wonderful. It's what I've always wanted to do."

Myrberg, 63, will be awarded the Harvey Lowe Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the yo-yoing community and be inducted into the American Yo-Yo Association's Yo-Yo Hall of Fame Friday at a ceremony during the World Yo-Yo Contest in Orlando, Fla.

"It's really humbling to me that my peers in the yo-yo world think enough of me, and what I have done, to honor me with both of these awards," Myrberg said.
