PULLMAN, Wash. — Two missionaries were recently the featured halftime show during a college basketball game here. Elder Roger Pimentel and Elder Justin Welch of the Washington Spokane Mission appeared during the Washington State University and Oregon State University men's game Feb. 12 to highlight champion yo-yoing. Elder Welch introduced his companion, Elder Pimentel, who is a former state yo-yo champion from Florida and who placed 11th in the World Yo-Yo Championships in 2000.

The some 4,000 fans gave Elder Pimentel a standing ovation. A portion of the performance was nationally televised on the Fox Sports network.
