"From District 3, there's just Beetee Latier, a guy who won last year. I remember those Games very well. He killed a boy in the bloodbath by chocking her with a wire that he would use eventually to win, electrocuting all of the careers at once, killing them. They weren't all present at that time."
-Thorburn talking about Beetee's Games
The 39th Games were won by the 17-year-old Beetee Latier from District 3. These Games were quite popular since the way he won was quite spectacular.
Not much is known about the pre-games except that most people wanted Beetee as an ally but he stayed alone. Also, his odds of winning were 13-1. During the Games, Romulous Jackson was the Head Gamemaker. During training, since he showed off his skills on how to use electricity as a weapon, some wire was added in the arena just for him to use. Because of his score, his odds of winning were 13-1.
In the Bloodbath, only ten people died (11 being the norm) including Beetee's district partner and the District 1 female, placing 15th and 18th. The first to die was the District 8 Female. During this time, he choked a tribute to death using a wire that he got from the cornucopia
After a few days, only four careers were left in the last seven, having killed nearly everybody. The District 1 male, District 2 male, District 2 female, District 3 male (Beetee), District 4 female, District 7 female and District 11 female were still alive. They were all hunting down one another on a wet hill (it rained the night before). Beetee used the water to electrocute all six of them at once. The final showdown placing is:
|Beetee Latier||1st||3||electrocuting the last tributes|
|District 4 Female||2d||4||getting electrocuted|
|District 1 Male||3d||1||getting electrocuted|
|District 2 Male||4th||2||getting electrocuted|
|District 11 Female||5th||11||getting electrocuted|
