Jos Luc Weems (Black Unicorn)
I am a very strong 12 year old who is a fun, charismatic, and caring person. I have been called “The Tiger Woods of Bowling” and my nickname (and company name) is Black Unicorn. I love to travel, both domestically and internationally. But, most of all, I love bowling and just hanging out with all my friends. A lot of times I am very joyful and happy; but, I can and will go into “serious mode” on the lanes. In my downtime, I play a lot of games with my friends and watch funny videos about bowling matches. As an aspiring heart surgeon, it’s no surprise that my favorite subjects in school are math and science. Sometimes, I get a little stressed out balancing my schoolwork and bowling life but my parents and friends help me out and keep me sane. When I am not traveling, bowling or doing school work, I work out to keep getting stronger. After 8 years of training, I’m also a brown belt in Kyo Kushin Karate. Additionally, I like to play billiards and ping-pong with my parents. To be honest, I don’t really have a favorite food but I do like good chicken and bread. I am very passionate about the sport of bowling, and always love to bring the energy.
A quote that pushes me to work hard is "Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." What is your signature (what you are known for) as an athlete? If you don't think you have one yet, what do you hope that people will remember about you as a competitor?
"People know me both as a fierce competitor and a fan of the sport. I can both compete at the highest level against an opponent and root for them to be successful, as well."
Do you play other sports or have another hobby? What are they?
