Please Welcome - Mehdi 'DARKSWORD' Oumanzou


We are honored to welcome Medhi to The Atlas Lions as our first official fighting games player ever!! 

'DARKSWORD' isn't just any fighting games player, he's the 2019 Moroccan Champion who hosts a wonderful resume at both online and offline events! 

We managed to catch up with him prior to this post to get more of an insight into his wonderful career so far! 

"My name Mehdi Oumanzou AKA DARKSWORD, I'm 34 years old. I used to play fighting games, mainly Street Fighter and The King of Fighters series, just as a pastime because I was focusing more on my studies but when Street fighter V was released in 2016 and after a successful year, I started to attend tournaments more frequently, winning many offline and online tournaments which pushed me to go further and become more professional. I have many objectives that I am working on now and I hope Atlas Lions help me to achieve them"


"I'm extremely excited to bring Medhi onboard and can't wait to get started. It's been a dream of mine since forming The Atlas Lions to have Moroccan representation at a high level within our organisation and I believe we have found exactly that and more with 'Darksword' and 'FReeZer' joining our ranks. I can't wait to see what the future holds and I look forward to the journey to come!" - Amir Nouhas (Owner of The Atlas Lions)
