Britain’s Worst Bowler Injures Himself With Heroic Lunge

This guy managed to give himself a hefty bruise while bowling on a boozy night out in Newcastle.

1. This is Adam Young. He’s not the best at ten-pin bowling.

The 25-year-old was filmed at a bowling alley in Newcastle late last month and the clip has since gone viral, after being featured by YouTube Fail Army, with its 5.3 million subscribers, and many others.

2. He tells the Newcastle Chronicle:

The day after it happened I woke up with a big bruise on my chest … I asked my wife what had happened and she said, ‘Do you not remember throwing yourself down the bowling alley?’

I’d been out before, and been on the drink, so had a canny few.

3. Well done, Adam. Well done.
