South America is catching up with its contenders: Alonso 'kotaro' Leon Arango alias Mnz reaches 11k MMR. The professional Dota 2 scene is getting ready for The International and it looks like South America is in a great shape this year. Thunder Predator carry Alonso 'kotaro' Leon Arango, also known as Mnz or Minoz, breached the 11,000 MMR mark on Monday.

While MMR is not everything and the current record to break is 12K, the milestone is a strong testimony for the potential of the region. Thunder Predator had a formidable start in the DPC season, finishing on sixth place in the ONE Esports Singapore Major 2021.

In the tournament, they were dominating the Group Stage with a 12-2 score where they defeated top team such as PSG.LGD, Team Aster or Alliance. The organisation also revealed in June that NA star Clinton 'Fear' Loomis will be coaching them for The International, so they will surely be an interesting team to watch.
