SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It’s a skill where focus is the key, and there’s no time for mistakes in the sport of Speed Stacking.

“These kids all had to place in the top 5 of their age division,” said Paula Cook, founder of Stack It Sacramento.

They qualified to represent Sacramento in the Junior Olympics this summer.

This is the first time ever that the sport of stacking cups will be featured at the games.

“These kids are champions,” said Cook. “They’re going to win and represent the city really well.”

Practicing several days a week pays off for state record holders, brother and sister Shelby and Brennan Johnson.

Why does Brennan like to stack?

“Because I get to be on a team and be with my friends,” he told CBS13.

Cook says the skills they’re learning will help them in other activities.

“If you are a stacker and you want to play basketball, you’ll have that dual dexterity that just makes you better in another sport,” she explained.
