ECHO FOX|Justin Wong has a long and distinguished Street Fighter career and has been a top player (if no the top player) in North America for many of those years. Justin Wong has earned a spot to compete at every Capcom Cup so far and is looking for 2017 to be his first win. As usual he’s had a great season, earning top 16 at five Premier Events including EVO 2017. He’s also earned top 16 at seven Ranking Events and has gotten wins at Toryuken 6 and Buenos Aires True Salt. For Street Fighter 5 Justin has been playing Karin, a very powerful character in a skilled player’s hands. Justin’s play style is more defensive and patient, looking for openings and exploiting mistakes.
