Came across this Ted Talk after Akashi shared a clip from it on his Instagram. He’s a very good speaker, and it’s an interesting presentation.

There's also a Vietnamese woman competing.

Yep, South Korea has been supporting some smaller/new programs. I know the Nigerians have been at the track training new drivers and brakeman as well.
