Athlete of the Week: Florence Ramsell still bowling at 90

WATERLOO (KWWL) On February 9th, Florence Ramsell turned 90 years old. About 25 years ago she began bowling three days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

At 90 years old, she still throws a 13 pound bowling ball down the lanes.

"How long will you keep bowling? How long? I hope years!" said Ramsell.

Ramsell said she and her husband started bowling with friends, and she's just kept at it. Even after knee surgery she's still averaging 162. Her best game is 232.

Ramsell said she loves bowling, but she mostly enjoys the friendships she's made.

"The social part. The exercise is good. It's fun to bowl, but the social part's what I love," said Ramsell.

Age aside, it's safe to say Florence Ramsell is a very good bowler! In 2007, she was inducted into the Cedar Valley Bowling Hall of Fame.
