In one of the most exciting finals in Air Hockey history, Colin Cummings of Houston, Texas becomes the youngest Air Hockey World Champion in the history of the sport after defeating defending champion Billy Stubbs at the 2015 AHPA Air Hockey World Championship.

Thanks to everyone who believed in me! This has truly been one of the most spectacular days of my life! - Colin Cummings (via Facebook)

With the composure you would never expect a 16-year-old could have in such a high pressure situation, Colin Cummings completed his quest to become the youngest Air Hockey World Champion in the history of the sport last weekend by defeating 4-time World Champion Billy Stubbs at the 2015 AHPA Air Hockey World Championships. After navigating his way through the double elimination bracket without suffering a loss, Cummings lost the first set of the finals but was able to regroup and defeat Stubbs in the second 4 games to 2.

Viewers both on-site and watching via live stream watched anxiously as Cummings and Stubbs put on a dazzling display of offense and defense which resulted in 4 of the 6 games in the final set being decided with both players having the opportunity to win with a single goal. The scores for the deciding set were 6-7, 7-1, 6-7, 7-4, 7-6, 7-6.

The 2015 AHPA Air Hockey World Championship was held at the Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, CO and was an official event of the Rocky Mountain State Games.
