Bowling: Uroš Stoklas will bowl for 24 hours for a Guinness record

On Friday, April 15, 2022, an unprecedented bowling event will take place in Radlje ob Drava. Uroš Stoklas, legend of Slovenian bowling, multiple world champion, and also an excellent cyclist, three-time participant in the toughest race in the world RAAM in America and many other cycling races in Europe will take part in the bowling marathon for the Guinness record for 24-hour bowling. Uroš is still a member of the Slovenian bowling team, he also bowled for the Macedonian national team and was world runner-up with it, he won titles with clubs Iskraemeco, Osijek, Zadar, Rot Weiss Zerbst, Staffelstein, Zaprešić, etc. He is also very well-known in our community, as he has been playing in the Municipal Trim League for the Ambrož team for eight years, for which he set a new record this week with 679 knocked down pins bowling alley in Kamnik. How much this stone record is worth is shown by the fact that the serial national champion Matej Lepej came closest to it, who knocked down 650 pins last year. Although the result will not be in the foreground at the marathon, it is a reflection of serious preparations for this test, as in the past weeks he has achieved records at practically all the bowling alleys where he trained.

However, Uroš made sure that he would not be alone in this unique challenge, as the bowling alley has four lanes. His current and former teammates will alternately play alongside him, practically all the world’s bowling elite, such as Boris Benedik, Vilmoš Zavarko, Tamas Kiss, current world champion Csongor Barany and others. The remaining places on the tracks were “sold out” in less than an hour.

Uroš, who has prepared performances impossible for ordinary mortals on several occasions, such as a 48-hour cycle ride on an exercise bike in Izlak, always adds a charitable note and also takes care of vulnerable groups. It will be the same this time, so you are cordially invited to watch this unique event live and contribute to charity as much as you can.
