The FCI Agility Commission traditionally meets after every Agility World Championship. In the one from today, they named the Japanese Toshiyuki Oba from Japan as the second judge for the upcoming World Championship in Turku, Finland. Previously, the Finnish Association has already proposed and confirmed Sari Mikkilä as the first judge. Thus, the judges duo for the next World Championship is already fixed. Toshiyuki Oba has a large fan base in Europe. One of his last job was in Switzerland at the Swiss Agility Cup. The Japanese is also known by his self-drawn dog portraits.
