As Hannah Clark gets ready to make her international debut at IBF U21 World Championships in Sweden, let’s get to know more about the Queenslander.
Squad: NTS 21
Home State/Territory: Queensland
Home Centre: Mt Warren Lanes
Personal coach: Rudy Turoczi
Bowling style: Right-hand, one-hand
High Game: 299
It was at the age of 11 that Hannah started bowling, with her first memories of the sport coming when she made the Bundaberg team.
Born in Townsville, Hannah spent most of her life growing up in Bundaberg, four hours north of Brisbane before moving to the Queensland capital with her family.
Bowling is the Queensland bowler’s favourite sport – and the only sport she likes. Her favourite thing about the sport is getting to visit different places.
While she made her first National Training Squad in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions, Hannah has not yet represented Australia internationally. The IBF U21 World Championships will be her first international outing.
With a goal to bowl over in the United States in the future, the Brisbane-based athlete also hopes to find a job that allows her to work with animals.
When she’s not on the lanes playing or training, Hannah enjoys spending time with her family as well as candle making.
