85-year-old Wisconsin Man Earns Wii Guinness Record
ONALASKA, Wis. (AP) An 85-year-old man from Onalaska has made it into the Guinness World Record's book for the most perfect games of Wii Sports Bowling.
John Bates recorded 2,850 perfect games from April 2009 through October 2010, to make it into Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition.
The retired high school principal first started playing Wii bowling at a friend's house at the end of 2008.
Bates, who is ambidextrous, started perfecting his scores after he started using both his left and right hand.
Guinness says he also bowls regularly in a bowling league.
