Congratulations to Kawano for winning the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 Japan Final!
He was able to defeat Daigo "The Beast" Umehara in the exhibition match last weekend.
This win is a fantastic addition to what Kawano has done over the past year:
- 1st place at the Topanga Champioship 3 in July
- 1st place at the Asia East bracket for EVO 2021 in August
- 1st place for the CPT Japan 4 event in January
- In addition to 2nd and 4th place results at other CPT Japan events
- 2nd place in Street Fighter League Japan 2021 with his team Good 8 Squad in late January
Kawano has shown that he is one of the strongest players in Street Fighter V - out-placing and beating all of the legends of the game in Japan. We have had the honor to support him for the past year and half, and we are ecstatic at his improvement and results. And we are beyond excited to see what more he will do in the future.
Get ready Street Fighter community. The future is here, and his name is Kawano!
Be sure to follow Kawano and send him your congrats!
