Bolivia’s two-handed bowlers


A novel two-handed bowling technique has Bolivian bowlers winning medals and professional championships.

The method was developed by Australian bowler Jason Belmonte–one of the world’s leading ten-pin bowlers.

Just two fingers are placed into the holes and the thumb is left out. The right hand is used to support the ball and create extra spin on release.

Trainers in Bolivia are studying videos on YouTube of Belmonte and passing the technique on to young bowlers.
