This is the 2021 World AeroPress Championship 2nd place, recipe by Maru Mallee.

In the words of Maru, via his Instagram:

I wanted to share the recipe I submitted to the World AeroPress Championships, that got me 🥈 2nd place.

I hope people enjoy it, but remember that any competition recipe is dialed in specifically for the type of beans being used, so if you are going to use this recipe with different beans, please be ready to adjust the variables for a good extraction.
