2nd Place – Salt Lake Comic Con Mario Kart Tournament
Jarom participated in the XFINITY Mario Kart Tournament at Salt Lake FanXperience 2015. After several rounds of nail-biter action over a three-day tournament, he made it to the finals on Saturday evening. Dressed in a suave Gentleman Mario cosplay and cool under the pressure of news cameras, he came up to his biggest challenge yet. Two of his competitors in the final four were no match for his drifting skills (one of them was using tilt controls), but the Bowser player of the group took a sizable early lead and seemed to breeze through tracks while our hero struggled to keep up. Jarom’s Light-Blue Yoshi ended up taking second place in all four races of the finals, thus cementing his silver medal performance. The winner took home a brand-new Wii U and Jarom got the leftover XFINITY earbuds, which died within a week.
