The IKAN ("I can") Bowler can enable virtually any wheelchair user to bowl dynamically (involving the movement of the wheelchair; not stationary ramp bowling) and the sport of dynamic wheelchair bowling is legitimate, says the United States Bowling Congress (USBC). The USBC sanctioned the IKAN Bowler for league and tournament play -- any league or tournament anywhere in the U.S. -- bowling with and/or against able-bodied bowlers, or fellow IKAN Users.
Since the IKAN Bowler is the only wheelchair bowling device sanctioned by the USBC (which is a merger of the Women's International Bowling Congress and the American Bowling Congress) for league or tournament play, records achieved bowling dynamically with an IKAN Bowler are indeed legitimate world records for wheelchair bowling. Here's the website that shows the current master list and explains more if you're curious:
You may have noticed that some links in previous blog entries go to the new website. If you're wondering how that is possible since this website is new, it's because I went back and updated those links after creating the above website. I thought the records should have a more legitimate Internet space on their own website, instead being on my personal website.
We look forward to increased competition and the setting of new records!
