Daigo: Besides Wong, USA and Australia at same skill level

In an interview with Shadowloo.com, Daigo Umehara, speaking through a translator, claimed that with the exception of Justin Wong, America and Australia are at the same skill level in Super Street Fighter 4.

The rest of the 9 minute interview that follows covers Daigo's opinions, but there isn't anything too exciting.
Humanbomb, who took home 2nd place at the recent EVO APAC tournament, behind Daigo, will be attending EVO this year in Las Vegas. It's unknown how many other players from Australia will be able to make it over and compete at the event, but it should be interesting to see how they stack up with the players in America and other parts of the world who show up.

This year's Super Street Fighter 4 EVO competition currently has over $20,000 on the line, a number that continues to grow, so there's a heavy financial incentive for anyone who feels like they can win to attend.
