    Man bowls for 102 hours, 1 minute and 25 seconds

    Man May Reclaim Bowling Endurance Title

    MIDDLETOWN, Ohio - Dave Wilson spent a lot of time in the fast lane _ bowling for more than four days straight in an attempt to reclaim his world record for the sport's endurance title.

    Wilson, 40, of Mason, on Saturday finished the last of 481 games played over more 102 hours, 1 minute and 25 seconds. He reported bowling a 236 in one game, but it wasn't strikes and spares he was after.

    The feat raised more than $13,000 in pledges from spectators, which Wilson is donating to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the Building Blocks Foundation, which helps children with medical needs.

    Wilson is awaiting official confirmation from the Guinness World Records. He held the record for about five days last June after bowling for 64 hours, 22 minutes, but a Canadian broke it by going 100 hours.

    The first thing he did after he finished? Drink a Guinness Stout to celebrate.

    Wilson was allowed a 15-minute break after every eight hours of bowling, according to Guinness rules, but he skipped the last break after a donor pledged $1 for every pin he knocked down after 6 p.m. Saturday. Wilson finished at about 10 p.m. and collected $1,410 from that pledge.

    That's some impressive stuff. I wonder how many games he ended up playing in 102 hours.
