SANTO DOMINGO.-The brilliant Dominican bowler Alejandro Prats revealed this week that he will always work hard to stay among the first in the ranking of America and worldwide of that discipline, in which he has already reaped several achievements as a member of the national team.
Alejandro, son of the former basketball player, sports reporter and immortal of Dominican sport Frank Prats, said he is satisfied that he finished in the top eight of all the bowlers in America who participated in the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru last year.
Prats has to his credit two gold medals in the Central American Games, the first Mayagüez 2010 forming a couple with José Estrada, and another in Veracruz 2014, He clarified, however, that “talking about ranking in bowling is quite difficult, since that depends on the number of international events you go to, because there is a score, which is what positions you. ”
“I have seen myself in the top three positions at the national level, I was eighth in Lima, but that does not mean that it is number eight in America, I was simply the eighth of those who attended Peru,” Alex emphasized.
“But being part of the list of the first 15, always staying healthy at that level and continuing to bring medals to the country, is something that I have always achieved with God in front of me,” added Prats interviewed for the ‘Stop Time’ of Escenario Deporitvo.
On the paralysis of all the important events due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, he said that “I have taken it in peace with my family, because now the most important thing is health.”
He stated that when the situation arose due to the coronavirus, “he had yet to attend a professional tournament in Las Vegas, which was postponed even without a date.” “I haven’t done much during the quarantine,” explains Prats.
Bowling is a sport that is only played in the bowling alley and one does not have enough space to practice properly, except trying to do some exercises to keep the body in the best possible shape.
– Example of his father
Alex is proud to be the son of a great athlete, as was Frank Prats. “Dad was telling me that I had to work harder to be the best at what I do and I’m trying to follow through on his great advice,” he said.
