|Shaun Claudio Lopes (North West University) has set himself up as the front-runner in the Tekken 7 esports title.|
Ever since Vittorio Puissa represented Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) in 2011 in IESF's World Championships, MSSA has always submitted a full team to such world championships in every single year that the Tekken game title was held.
Since 2012, three females have represented South Africa in Tekken at IESF World Championships, being: Lyrene Kűhn, Morizane Boyes, and Charlize Seremak.
It should be noted that all MSSA Regional, Provincial, and National Championships, as well as online championships and online leagues count towards selection to the national team.
Being selected to represent South Africa at IESF's World Championships is the highest honour that an esports athlete in South Africa can earn. Such player is awarded the much coveted Protea Colours - thhe same as in any other sport, and the experience of being thrust among the world's best is of legends.
