If you’re under the impression that bowling a perfect game is difficult, that’s because it is. In order to conquer the amazing feat, you have to bowl 12 straight strikes. Head down to the local bowling alley in your spare time and try to roll three in a row and let us know how it turns out. Then try doing it from a wheelchair. If you pull it off, Shawn Beam has nothing on you.
According to KDFW in Dallas-Fort Worth, Beam recently became the only known person in a wheelchair to bowl a perfect game. Born with a pinched nerve in his neck, Beam has been confined to a wheelchair his entire life. He decided bowling was a sport that interested him during his teenage years and has been hitting the lanes for about 22 years now. When he rolled 10 straight strikes last Friday, Beam said everyone at Cityview Lanes began to gather around.
