Competitive gamer Julio Bianchi has quickly made a name for himself in the world of e-sports as one of South Africa’s top FIFA players. He is currently ranked number two in South Africa on the Global FIFA21 leaderboard, and serves as the captain of the FIFA squad for one of the country’s top e-sports teams, Goliath Gaming. Bianchi is completing his accounting degree, and challenging the world’s best FIFA players and beating them. In 2018 he beat two-time world champion August Agge Rosenmeier from Denmark, and earlier this year he defeated another world champion when he beat Saudi Arabia’s Mosaad Al-Dossary. Although Bianchi is proud of these achievements, his real drive comes from wanting to elevate professional gaming in the eyes of South Africans and the global e-sports community. He wants to see South African players and teams awarded more qualification opportunities to prove themselves on the world stage.
Failures are not there as a standard of what you can and cannot achieve but rather as a learning curve and an opportunity to improve and build on yourself.
