Here's the deal
You are correct...bowling is not a sport and will never be due the fact that a sports requires ATHLETIC
skill, but at the same time bowling is a game of skill and requires a ton of it to be a great bowler.
Bowlers please do not get upset with me because i've argued that bowling is a sport for the longest until someone told me to look at the Traber brothers who bowl on tour. Those guys have to be the most unathletic guys ever! but they to score very well.
The event is called the Olympic GAMES. Therefore bowling may one day be apart of the schedule.
Right now the USA has a very solid method of choosing our best bowlers, and that is every year in Las Vegas, NV anyone who feels they are worthy enough to try out for our national team may do so in a grueling week long contest to choose our top bowlers. So far that system is flawless.
And every year just like in other sports we do take our best bowlers somewhere on Earth and compete against other nations.
The problem in previous year was that different countries did have different methods of bowling...some asian countries used barely any oil and some european countries used too much. As of right now there 56 countries competing in the World Men's Championships in Bangkok, Thailand.
"To qualify as an Olympic sport, an activity must be "widely practiced by men in at least 75 countries and on four continents, and by women in at least 40 countries and on three continents," according to Olympics officials. In other words, participation matters."
So basically the its up to us as bowlers to all be representatives of the game and spread it to others...
so who's ready because I am!!!
Don't trust anything I'm saying? Well look me up on bowl.com
the name is Ryon Collins...I bowl in Richmond and Petersburg, VA and have a top 20 average in both cities. Have thrown 5 300 games and 4 800's this season.
the secret to every great bowler that I know is successful...take advantage of what your given, and what the bowler does next to you is irrelavent, and can not be helped.
I'm a rare case of someone who has bowled a 300 game in one night and did not win the handicap high game...lost to a 307...life isnt fair people but being the marvelous people we are as bowlers, we know how to move on to the next frame of life...
