Dennis Joell of Bermuda is in Hong Kong competing at the World Bowling Men's Championships against the best bowlers in the world.
Joell chose to buy a new bowling ball to play with at the event but instead of taking his other $200 bowling ball home with him, the ball was regifted to the Afganistan team who arrived at event with no equipment and were using "house balls" from the public center next to the competition venue.
"It's moments like these when we realize the power of sport and the friendship it brings." said Technical Director Marios Nicolaides who aided the switch in equipment.
Joell speaking to wwww.islandstats.com said, “After deciding to purchase another ball I took the opportunity to donate the ball to World Bowling to give to someone in need. I wasn't aware who they would give it to, but I’m glad to help jumpstart someone in the sport of bowling, a sport that has given me much joy in a short period of time.”
