Man bowls 300 … from a wheelchair

Dec 3, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT


Wait, what? Last week 48-year-old Chesapeake, VA, resident George Holscher (not pictured) bowled a perfect game, even though he is confined to a wheelchair. But possibly the most amazing thing about it is, he’s the second person to do it this year. This past May a Texas man also bowled a perfect game, according to the American Wheelchair Bowling Association.

“I know I said I can’t feel my knees, but let me tell you, they were weak,” Holscher said of how he felt after bowling a 300.”

Holscher was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident when he was 25.

    Good for him. His comment was priceless too.

    Does he have to rent special tires when he bowls?
