Centralia Washington is most known to technical divers as the home of the “Meg hatchery” where the Megalodon rebreather is made. It turns out, however, that it’s also the home of Ester Medley, a Ninety-four-year-old woman who managed to bowl the most impressive score of 244 yesterday.
Now, a bowling score of 244 is impressive no matter how you look at it, but it’s nothing less than astonishing when you conceder the fact that Medley is legally blind!
It takes teamwork though. Since she can’t see directly ahead of her, she depends on her 86-year-old husband to tell her which pins are still standing after she rolls the first ball. Everyone sees something when they close their eyes… I can only imagine Ester Medley sees a bowling alley.
In this impressive game, Medley threw eight strikes at Fairway Lanes in Centralia, and managed the second-highest score of the year for her senior league. Way to go Ester!
