one-of-nation-best-bowlers

In bowling, we have had a deaf bowler that
at one time, during the late sixties, ranked
as the 20th best in the nation. He won one
major tournament.

It was Leroy Christian, who lived in the
Northern Virginia area – and it was not
10-pin bowling, but duck pin bowling.

At one time duck pin bowling was popular
but it is a dying recreational sport.

Because it was impossible to make a full time
living out of duck pin bowling, Leroy worked
at his real job while bowling during his
free time.
