Next to the Olympics, the USPA release says, the World Games is the largest multi-sport event in the world, taking place once every four years. Bartholomew’s victory at the 2013 World Games also made him the event’s “Athlete of the Day.” He was selected for the distinction among the more than 4,000 participating athletes in multiple sports.
Next, Bartholomew took on 80 other competitors from around the world to earn the title of World Cup champion, winning the overall gold medal, as well as gold in the speed and accuracy events.
These championships extend Bartholomew’s winning streak after he won the 2012 World Championships last December and the U.S. National Championships this past June.
Bartholomew, 27, trains at Skydive DeLand in Florida. He has completed more than 5,500 skydives, the release says.
