On the five-pin bowling lanes, Yvonne LeRuyet and Jordon Korum have completely different styles. LeRuyet is deliberate and precise in her delivery, while Korum prefers to throw a hard, curving ball that rips through the target area with a complete lack of mercy.
Their approaches may reside at opposite ends of the spectrum, but LeRuyet and Korum do have something in common.
Both of them put up big points. LeRuyet's average score is 149 and Korum's is 176. Their high single games are 304 and 286 respectively.
This week, the two local rollers will be prowling for pins at the Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in London, Ont. LeRuyet is part of a five-player Delta team and Korum is a member of a Quesnel-based crew. When those teams had spots open up, LeRuyet and Korum -- based on their rankings within the province -- were chosen to fill them.
The opening ceremonies in London are planned for Tuesday.
