A fourth-grader at Franklin Elementary School in Succasunna, NJ recently competed in the World Sport Stacking Championship in Orlando, Florida.

Aiden Mulholland represented the United States team which brought more than 400 of the world’s top competitors from 19 countries.

Across the world, sport or cup stacking now takes in more than 40,000 schools in their Physical Education classes as well as in the Roxbury elementary schools.

At the World Championships, Aiden competed in the 9-year old division and finished third in the cycle competition, second in the 3-3-3 competition, and first in the 3-6-3 stacking competition.

According to the World Sport Stacking Association website, “The pinnacle sport stacking event - the World Sport Stacking Championships held each spring - is hosted by the WSSA. This event draws competitors from across the globe to attempt to set verified World Records in their age groups/divisions and be declared world-class in sport stacking.”

Last summer, Aiden excelled in the local Stack by the Sea tournament in New Jersey, which qualified him for the Olympic tournament in Detroit and last fall Aiden participated in the Big Apple Challenge where he took first place in all events.

Congratulations Aiden!
