Manuel Otalora

Bowling for over 20 years, I’ve achieved a carrier full of success with many national and international titles. At 33 years I’m a Colombian National team veteran and have participated in over 50 international tournaments with the team. At age 19 I attended the University of Nebraska from 2003/05.

This step in my carrier gave me the chance to move to USA and work much more on my game while participating in many tournaments. The highlight of my carrier so far is the WORLD TITLE I won at the WORLD GAMES in 2009, as well as the Gold medal in singles in the mens PABCON championships in 2011.

Storm and Roto Grip's international staff member since 2010.  Member of the Colombian National Bowling Team for the last 15 Years.  Was a member of the University of Nebraska Bowling Team, 2003 – 2005.

Thanks to my success with Team Colombia, I’m a member of the Colombia’s Top 100 Athletes Program. I’ve been in televised finals and appeared in more than 100 articles worldwide.
