To train one last time, he is assisted by Sandjo, one of the best Street Fighter 5 players in the fenua. “What is good with Jonas, he puts Polynesia on the world map in terms of gaming, especially for Street Fighter 5, he confides. But also the young people see that with us there are champions. In any case, we are there to help all the new players. We see each other regularly, every Saturday and as soon as there are new players, we try to explain to them, to bring them into our universe. And I think that if people gave themselves the means, we could set up a team, because there is potential. ”
For the final phase of the Intel World Open Oceania, there are 8 players: 5 Australians, 2 New Zealanders and Jonas for Polynesia. Jonas is very confident. “In any case, I will give the best of myself, but as they say, you must not sell the skin of the bear before having killed it”, he smiles.
