Dublin teenager Josh Juliano placed 58th in the Fortnite World Cup solo event last night, and takes home a prize of $50,000
To qualify for the tournament he had to beat 40 million other people.
Sixteen year old American Kyle Giersdorf won the solo event of the competition in the Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York, which hosts the US Open tennis tournament.
The 30 million dollar prize pool was the largest in the history of e-sports.
Congrats to all of our winners this weekend at the #FortniteWorldCup Finals
