Video: 84-year old woman tries bowling for the first time; hits a strike on her first throw

Bowling is a young man’s old woman’s game.

Some people have to practise awfully hard to be good at their chosen sport whereas some are just naturals.

This 84-year old grandmother, trying out bowling for the first time, is obviously a natural.

A strike on her first ever throw, while wearing a fur-lined coat that would put Giant Reed of Father Ted fame to shame?

Now that’s impressive.
