Bloom is Whitworth's school record-holder in the javelin.  He was the 2016 NCAA Division III champion and an All-American in 2017 and 2018 when he finished in second and third place, respectively.

Bloom came to Whitworth as a baseball player, but converted to track and field in his sophomore season.
