A Moline, Illinois boy is headed to the Junior Olympics for competition that takes some serious hand-eye coordination.

Matt Davis, 11, has been stacking cups for the past five years.  Now his talent is taking him to Houston, Texas to compete in three different cup-stacking events. 

Davis learned the patterns required for competition in his school gym class.

He practices cup stacking two to three hours every day.

The longest pattern, known as “the cycle,” takes him just under eight seconds to complete.
