Osku Palermaa


I have been around the sport of bowling my entire life. My father worked at a bowling center when I was little so of course I was easily hooked. I started rolling the ball down the lane about the same time I learned to walk. As I continued to grow as a child so did my game. By the time I was 14 I started to travel great distances to events around my native country of Finland. From that point I knew I wanted to travel the world and become the best bowler I could be.

My family and friends always have and always will mean a lot to me, just as the sport of bowling. Bowling has guided me through many life experiences from traveling the globe to creating wonderful friendships. More importantly bowling allowed me to meet my future wife and recent mother to our first child, Veronica. She has been by my side and helped me grow along the way as a bowler, a man and now as a father.
