Blevins is a bowling champion at age 100.
"I've been bowling regularly for 93
years” he says proudly. “I don't think
anyone else can say that."
A native of Kentucky, George traveled
to Louisville at the beginning of July to
participate in the 2007 National Senior
Games. He won the past two National Senior
Games singles tournaments for the over 75
age group — first in Hampton, Va., four
years ago and then two years ago in
Pittsburgh, Pa. George successfully defended
his title and came away, once again, with a
gold medal. He was the only 100 year-old
bowler and one of two centenarians
participating in the games.
