It focuses on a traditional 1-handed delivery versus the new 2-handed delivery made popular by PBA bowler Jason Belmonte. So...In case you missed it live, you can check out the clip on the CTV Vancouver website or by clicking the play button below!

Oscar Lintag, born October 15, 1991, bowled his entire youth career as part of the The Zone Richmond youth program. He was dedicated to the sport, exemplifying determination, sportsmanship and team work. His departure on November 24, 2009, left many of us throughout the bowling community very heavy hearted.
