Zhiqiang “Shadow” Zhao’s Lee Sin moments have been absolute fan-favorites in the League of Legends European Championship (LEC) Summer Split.

MAD Lions jungler’s most recent impressive play took place during their match against G2 Esports during Week 5.

In this late-game clash, Shadow’s Lee Sin initiated the fight and cast his first ability Sonic Wave towards Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski’s Volibear. Jankos used his ultimate ability Stormbringer to jump back safely to his teammates, which was a big mistake on his part.

After Jankos’ landing, Shadow took advantage of his target’s positioning and re-cast Resonating Strike to dash towards Jankos’ location. Then, Shadow placed a Stealth Ward to create more distance behind G2. He utilized Lee Sin’s second ability Safeguard and successfully performed a ward hop.

Luka “Perkz” Perković’s Ezreal received the ultimate blow from Shadow, with the latter casting Dragon’s Rage and kicking Perkz towards MAD Lions and then immediately flashing away in the opposite direction.

In order to survive and buy time for his teammates, Shadow finished his move by activating his Zhonya’s Hourglass after Martin “Wunder” Hansen’s Camille cast his ultimate ability The Hextech Ultimatum.

With the Baron Nashor buff on their side, MAD Lions went for G2’s Nexus and ended the game in 30 minutes. They still stand on top of the standings tied with Rogue.
