I have devised how the teams in my perfect USA vs The World would look like. A few people (Rich King, Mohammed Isham, etc.) are big question marks due to the fact that 2012 was 8 (!) years ago. Thoughts? Notable omissions? (I haven’t watched ANW that intently these past few seasons, so I don’t really know who would be on the team)

For starters, if you ever wanted team Asia to do good, they need more than what you gave them. Would definitely swap out people who didn't do any Sasuke-related stuff in years for Mat Redho of Malaysia.
Your Europe picks are pretty good, but I believe Alexander Wurm could very well be the German representative as he's been the Last Man Standing in Germany the last 2 straight years. Sergio Verdasco of Spain would be awesome as well, and Marco Muller from was Last Man Standing of Ninja Warrior Switzerland 2 last year. I'd say look up "Ninja Macho" from Poland, as he was this year's Last Man Standing, but I don't think he'd do that well on the later Stages. Finally, Clement Dumais, who was on X Warrior and actually achieved Kanzenseiha on Ninja Warrior France last season. LOL so many European reps, it's hard to pick. And unlike what the post above said, I actually think Ali Hay is a better choice than UK champion Tim Champion as he's a better overall competitor in my opinion. Tim Shieff would be a great pick, though.
I like that you left USA open!!! It's always fun to shuffle around the teams. I totally agree with your Team Japan and Australia, though. Solid picks!
If you can't tell, I love Sasuke, but I'm very passionate about the world of Ninja Warrior that's opened up since Sasuke began.
I forgot about Mat! I guess Jackie Wong (Hong Kong) could work, but his age is concerning. I chose Luca Hanni because I hated that he was Switzerlands representative in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. It was too much of a perfect storm that he also participated in NW🇨🇭. Oceania is still a bit of a question mark, and I didn’t know who to chose. Does anybody happen to know what Rich and Ragivaru are doing nowadays?
