Special Olympic Bowler Will Be Tough To Beat

Special Olympic Bowler Will Be Tough To Beat

Posted: Updated:
Hazlet, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Heather O’Brien is getting ready to bowl her way to victory for team New Jersey in this year’s Special Olympic Games. O’Brien has won at a state level before, but this is her first time at a national level and the 28 year-old is excited to bring her “A”-game to this year’s Special Olympics!

“One of the meets I had, I got four strikes in a row, a four-bagger!” she bragged.

She says that it’s very important for bowlers to keep their wrists straight and focus on the lanes in front of you. O’Brien’s coach said that she is known for her consistency and confirmed that the bowler has gotten better throughout the year.

O’Brien started bowling when she was just eight-years-old and she is very involved in the Special Olympic Games this year. Not only is she a member of the bowling team, she is also involved with cross-country skiing, basketball and track. She is a member of the athlete congress as well as global messenger where she travels across New Jersey to spread the word and message of the Special Olympics.

Good Luck Heather!
