    Background: Guernica makes good its traditions and offers its streets and squares for the celebration of an unusual competition: The 1st. Top Spinning Championship of Biscay.

    The rules are strictly observed and the tops are previously weighed. The best are those made of oak-wood.

    The first test is "racing in line" - striking it with an iron prong and the coin has to be move across 200 meters. This year's champion has been Jose Ignacio Minteguia. The second test consists in drawing in three throws the greatest number of coins from this concentric circles - half a meeter the first one and one meter the rest.

    The winner Jose Luis Rementeria "Molinerito" displays his ability as a "virtuoso" of the hand-top ... something like fancy billiards.

    He well deserves his triumph, the ovations and the Cup.
