About Daigo ‘Beast’ Umehara
Daigo Umehara, better known in the west as “The Beast,” earned his first world title by the time he was seventeen. In 2010 he signed his first pro contract, making him Japan’s first pro gamer, and in August of the same year he was awarded the Guinness World Record for achieving the "Most Consecutive Tournament Wins". He has continued to break records throughout his career, winning the Evolution Championship Series for two consecutive years, and placing in the top 8 for five consecutive years. Among his many notable gaming achievements are the staggering "Daigo Parry" at Evo 2004, where he seemingly defied all logic to parry Justin Wong's Super Art before finishing off his opponent with a counter-attack. Daigo is the author of multiple bestselling books, a corporate and university lector, and a feature interviewee on national TV programs, newspapers, and popular magazines, including Harvard Business Review and GQ magazine of Japan.
He is sponsored by Twitch, Red Bull, HyperX, and Cygames.
