"Everything I've done, the grind, it's all paid off," says Kyle Giersdorf after he won $3 million from the Fortnite World Cup at just 16 years old.

The 3-day-long event at Arthur Ashe stadium in New York City had started with over 40 million people enter to compete online, then just a select 100 at the stadium itself.

Kyle Giersdorf is truly 1 in 40 million. However, judging by his tweets, he seems quite humble.
