Montréal’s Henri “Chi-Rithy” Oung has been long known as one of Canada’s best players, dating back to a tournament win over legendary Justin Wong in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike at Northeast Championships. Fast forward to now, and not much has changed, with just over the past weekend Oung securing a roster spot on Georges St. Pierre’s Grizzlys esports team.

Prior to his sponsorship, Chi-Rithy sat down with BornFree at Canada Cup 2017 to discuss his time in the scene. He also discussed his switch from Chun-Li to Karin in Street Fighter V, calling the characters similar, outside of fireballs. He also discussed his hope that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will bring more Japanese players into the game with a move to arcade cabinets.
