Momo is one of the members of Team Momo and the current captain of the team since Marble League 2021. Along with other team members, they hail from the mountainous region of Om and competed in Ramen Bowl before participating in Marble League 2016.

Widely regarded as one of the most consistent marbles in both Marble League and Marbula One, Momo was initially an average athlete, mostly finishing mid-pack in individual events. They're best known for their upset win in the Snow Rally, getting the win over Whizzy from the Savage Speeders in a tiebreaker. That gold enabled Team Momary to escape from the basement and eventually finished 12th. Momo has earned three individual medals across five Marble Leagues with one gold, one silver, one bronze, and have scored a total of 82 individual points.

Due to their consistent performances in both Marble League and Marbula One,they were announced as the new captain of Team Momo just before the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers, replacing Momomomo. Momo also holds the Marble League Record of the Ice Dash, setting up a record of 4.779 seconds.

History

Pre-Marble League

Team Momo comes from the mountainous region of Om in Southeast Asia. The four original members of the team, Mo, Momo, Momomo, and Momomomo, all hail from villages around the region's capital city of Om, one of the oldest cities in the world. They first met in 2011 at the Temple of Om, one of the most popular restaurants in the city, where they talked about their passion for marble sports over a plate of dumplings. They ordered so many dumplings that the restaurant ran out. A few days later, they decided to form a marble sports team named Team Momo, named after the dumplings they had eaten.

The four began training and, in 2012, they started to compete in the Ramen Bowl, a marble sports competition held in downtown Om. Within the year, they had made it to the championship league and, in 2013, they won their first Golden Noodle. They won a Bronze Noodle in 2014 and, then, another Golden Noodle in 2015. Due to their repeated success in the Ramen Bowl, Team Momo were invited to take part in Marble League 2016, and they accepted without hesitation.

2016

The team winning the gold in the Precision Slalom

Team Momo started off well in Marble League 2016, winning a bronze medal in the competition's first ever event, Balancing. They went on to win two more bronze medals in the Long Jump, and the High Jump. This was followed by their first gold medal in Precision Slalom. The team was sitting in fourth before the final event, two points behind the Thunderbolts and are tied with Mellow Yellow and the Savage Speeders on points. Momo managed to qualify for the final along with three other teams that happened to be the top three teams in the standings. which was enough for them to automatically qualify for Marble League 2017. Due to their unique name and early success, Team Momo had become one of the most popular teams in the competition.

2017

Marble League 2017 brought one of the most difficult years Team Momo could have imagined. The team were in twelfth in the standings after two events. In the now infamous Fidget Spinner Collision, Momomomo suffered a debilitating injury and a chunk of their glass broke apart from them. The team immediately withdrew from the rest of the event and fell to 13th overall, and remained there after the next two events. Momomomo was unable to compete for the rest of Marble League 2017 and was replaced by Mimo.

Team Momo getting a silver in the Relay Run

In Relay Run, Mimo's first event in the Marble League, Team Momo obtained their first medal of the season, a silver. Meanwhile, Momomomo returned to the stands to watch the team. The team got a second silver medal in Block Pushing, followed by a bronze medal for Mimo in High Jump. The three consecutive medals put them into 5th overall. Despite their run of medals, the team had a mediocre performance in the final four events, and dropped from sixth to ninth place overall in the final event.

During the 2017 off-season, Team Momo received many donations from across the marblebase, including the Midnight Wisps, to fulfill the payments for the medical care necessary for Momomomo's recovery. The team regularly checked in on them while they trained with Mimo. The team also received complaints about their new logo, which fans claimed reminded them of a smelly green trash bag.

2018

Team Momo appeared in the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers, where they were seeded in Group B. Momomomo had fully recovered from their injury, much to the fans' delight after a nearly silent off-season from the team. With two top three finishes throughout the Qualifiers, they scored twenty points, just enough to qualify for their appearance in Marble League 2018.

However, this season again proved difficult for Team Momo as the team were dead last overall after the second event. It got worse in Bobsled where Momomo and Momomomo got injured and the team finished the event in twelfth. Doctors quickly assisted and concluded the two injued athletes were unfit to compete further in Marble League 2018. When Team Momo heard about this, they reached out to several teams. Ultimately, the team ended up merging with their friends from Team Primary to form Team Momary. Team Momo would thus compete under the name of Team Momary, consisting of Mo, Momo, Prim and Mary, as well as Mimo, for the rest of the season.

Momo winning Race B in the Snow Rally

After the merger, Team Momary had two mediocre finishes and dropped to last in the standings at the halfway point with just 26 points, but they saw a much-desired gold medal in the Snow Rally, where Momo pulled off an upset win and narrowly beat Whizzy of the Savage Speeders in a tiebreaker, taking the team out of last place to twelfth overall. The team also got a silver medal in Curling, which finally put the team back into the top ten of the standings overall. However, the team struggled in the other events and finished in twelfth at the conclusion of the season.

After the games, Team Momary amicably split up back into Team Momo and Team Primary. Team Momo took part in the Amazing Maze Marble Race, with Momomo and Momomomo returning to compete in the latter. The team reached the semifinals of the Maze race, showing that they both had recovered from their injuries.

2019

Momomomo started off the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers with an eighth place finish in the Funnel Race event. Unfortunately, the team couldn't keep their momentum and finished in 14th, eleven points away from qualifying. As a result, Team Momo failed to qualify for Marble League 2019. Team Momo started their extended offseason by going on vacation around the world, which they had not been able to do since 2015. While they were visiting Prim and Mary in Van Gotterdam, the Marble League Showdown was announced. The team quickly returned to Om to start training.

The team in the Balancing

Team Momo had a strong start to the Showdown, with Momomomo coming in 4th in Sand Rally, but they experienced a downturn putting the team into 9th with one event to go. Using their experience from Marble League 2016, the team succeeded in turning things around with a fourth place finish in the final event, Balancing, jumping to 6th overall, and securing their place in the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.

Team Momo went to Temple of Om to celebrate their most recent success. Suddenly, during dinner there, coach Momomomomo revealed to the team that they had been invited to take part in Marbula One Season 1. The team accepted the invitation without hesitation and had Momo “Winning Dumpling” and Mimo “The First Reserve” represent them. They were hopeful that, by participating in Marbula One, they would be able to remind the marblebase that, despite their multiple downturns, they still got it.

2020

Marbula One Season 1

Momo in the starting gate of the Savage Speedway GP

In fact, Team Momo had been selected to host the third Grand Prix at their track, the Momotorway. The team got off to a good start as Momo qualified 3rd in Savage Speedway GP, but they slipped to 12th and got not points. They didn't score points in the next two Grands Prix either, including Momo's horrific performance at their home course, placing dead last. As a result the team sits at the bottom of the leaderboard. Things started to turn around as they scored points in Hivedrive GP despite qualifying in last. The team managed to make a comeback, getting points in every Grand Prix and scored a total of 37 points in the second half, including a bronze by Mimo in Razzway GP. Ultimately, Team Momo finished mid-table in Marbula One at 11th place, with Mimo doing better than Momo with them finishing 16th and 22nd out of 32 contestants respectively.

Marble League 2020

Team Momo entered the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers with a 19th in Balancing, then they were saved as Mo won Funnel Endurance, jumping the team to 6th. Then they got two bottom finishes, but thanks to their Funnel Endurance gold, they qualified on the bubble in 11th with 35 points, in a tiebreaker on best finish in a four-way-tie with the Bumblebees, Team Primary and the Jungle Jumpers, with the Bumblebees getting the last spot and the latter two failing to qualify.

Momo getting a silver in the Triathlon

The team started off with two 6th-place-finishes, placing 6th after two events. Mo finished last in the next event. It was followed by three mid-pack finishes and the team sits in 11th after six events. The team was able to turn the tables around in the Block Pushing by getting a silver. It was later followed by Momo's silver in the Triathlon. The two consecutive silvers jumped the team to 6th in the standings at the halfway point. The second half of the competition turned out to be more mediocre as the team failed to get any medals, but Mimo's 10th-place-finish in the Marble Marathon was enough to overtake the Raspberry Racers, finishing the tournament in 8th.

During the off-season, Memo became the team's manager. A few days later, Team Momo received an invitation to participate in Marbula One Season 2. They accepted, and once again Momo and Mimo were chosen to race for them. As a result, Mo, Momomo and Momomomo went on to see the 2020 Ramen Bowl, where they met Dragon's Egg. In the end the Spring Onions won, the Efficient Eggs take second and the Ramen Runners rounded up the podium.

Marbula One Season 2

Momo starting in second after the red flag at the Minty Mania GP

The season started off at the Minty Mania GP where Momo came out on top to finish 2nd and set the fastest lap. Mimo did even better at the O'raceway GP. Having qualified in 14th, they had a brilliant start and secured the team's first ever Marbula One victory. At the Honeydome GP, Momo set a lap time only good enough for 16th, barely qualifying for the race. In said race, however, they were able to catch up and finished the race in 5th. At the Aquamaring GP, Mimo qualified in 8th, but they crumbled in the main race, getting no points, while Red Eye from the Crazy Cat's Eyes dominated the race and got 26 points, extending their lead to 30 points. Momo was able to finish sixth in Tumult Turnpike GP. It was followed by a sixteenth-place-finish in Arctic Circuit GP. Halfway through Season 2, Team Momo were sitting in third, 10 points behind the second-placed Green Ducks and 34 points behind the leading Crazy Cat's Eyes.

2021

Marble League Winter Special

Momo breaking the Marble League Record in the Ice Dash

During the winter break of Marbula One, Team Momo were invited to take part in the Marble League Winter Special, which they accepted. The Winter Special started off with a promising performance, as Momo won a bronze medal at the Ice Dash. However, this was followed up by a bottom half result from Mo, who finished 11th at the Snowboard Cross, sending them down to 7th overall. There was a silver lining at Speed Skating, where the team's captain Momomomo finished 5th, putting the team into 5th overall. Despite another 5th place at the Bobsled event, they dropped back to 6th overall, which still looked fairly solid. However, due to a 14th place in the final event, Ice Hockey, Team Momo finished the competition mid-table in 9th overall.

Marbula One Season 2

Momo in the starting gate of the Savage Speedway GP

To everyone's surprise, the team started off horribly as Momo did not qualify at the Raceforest GP, dropping the team to 4th. Mimo barely qualified for their home Grand Prix at the Momotorway GP, but they managed to make up ground and finished 7th, then came two mid pack finishes at the Palette Park GP and the Misty Mountain GP. As a result the team dropped to fifth. Then came a thirteenth-place-finish at the Savage Speedway GP which dropped the team to 7th with one Grand Prix to go. Mimo recovered with a 4th place at the Midnight Bay GP, which was enough for the team to rise to 5th, with both marbles finishing top twelve in the individual championship.

Marble League 2021

Shortly before Marble League 2021 Qualifiers, it was announced that Momo would be taking over Momomomo's role as team captain. Team Momo was seeded into Group A in Marble League 2021 Qualifiers. The team started off with two mid-pack finishes, placing sixth after two events. It was followed by a second place finish in Relay Race which jumped them to second. However, once again they just barely qualified for Marble League 2021, making it in the final qualifying spot by two points over the Jungle Jumpers and the Midnight Wisps.

Momo and Momomo getting bronze in Jousting

Despite an 11th place in the Wave, the team followed with six consecutive top-eight finishes including Momo and Momomo's bronze in Jousting. After seven events, the team leads the standings with an astounding 108 points and four medals, twenty-seven points ahead of the Raspberry Racers in second place. However the team's momentum completely stopped since Triathlon as they finished bottom half in every remaining event except a seventh-place-finish in the Sand Mogul Race, only finishing sixth at the end of the season due to losing the tiebreaker to the Hazers and the Crazy Cat's Eyes in a three-way-tie.

2022

Marbula One Season 3

After their decent performances in Marbula One Season 2 and Marble League 2021, Team Momo received an invitation to compete in Marbula One Season 3. Once again, they accepted, retaining Momo and Mimo as their racers.

Momo starting in third at the Honeydome GP

Momo qualified second at the Tumult Turnpike GP, earning two additional points. In the main race, Momo was able to briefly hold the lead on lap 1, but dropped all the way to 15th at the end of lap 6. Momo eventually finished 9th. Mimo qualified 6th and finished 8th at the Sleet Street GP. Then came two mid-pack finishes at the Misty Mountain GP and the O'raceway GP. Mimo only finished 12th at the Mellow Meadows GP. Momo qualified third at the Honeydome GP, but they dropped to 19th at the second lap. Momo was able to recover and finished 9th. The team sits in 6th with 52 points at the halfway mark, with Momo and Mimo in 15th and 17th in the individual standings respectively.
