In 2022 we celebrated the long awaited rise to the top for the formidable Frenchman, Benoit Carpentier, who was able to secure his maiden APP World Title. We also witnessed the arrival of an exciting new wave of Japanese talent in the form of Women’s APP World and Junior Champion Kaede Inoue, her brother Taka Inoue and the current U18 Youth Champion Kapono Fukuda.

Meanwhile, the South American presence on Tour has only solidified, with a powerhouse of Brazilian talent in the form of Luis Diniz, Wellington Reis, Leonardo Gimenes and former World Champion Leco Salazar to mention just a few. For the women, there is Lucia Cosoleto from Argentina, Aline Adisaka from Brazil and of course Vania Torres from Peru, together amounting to a powerful contingent from South America.
