Following a 2nd place finish at Collegiate Nationals in April, Garrett Bottesy Bailey immediately transitioned back into raw training as he had his sights set on Suzdal, Russia for the 1st Classic World Championships in mid-June. 

Bottesy finished 2nd overall in the 93kg class in the Junior division, behind Team U.S.A teammate and 2013 Collegiate Champion Ian Bell. He also received medals for placing 3rd in squat and 2nd in deadlift in his weight class. He originally was awarded bronze, but after the 2nd place finisher failed the post meet drug test, Bottesy was given the silver.
