16-Year-Old Fortnite World Champ Wins $3 Million

NEW YORK, NY (AP) — All those hours playing video games have paid off for a Pennsylvania 16-year-old. Kyle Giersdorf won $3 million as the first Fortnite World Cup solo champion. The competition took place Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. That payout is more than Tiger Woods made for winning the 2019 Masters Tournament. Some 40 million players competed for a chance to play in the finals. The tournament offered $30 million in cash prizes. In second place, 24-year-old Harrison Chang, of the United States, won $1.8 million. The duo competition was won by 17-year-old David Wang, of Austria, and 16-year-old Emil Pedersen, of Norway. They’ll split a $3 million prize.
