Meet Madison Janack, a 17-year-old high school student and one of the best bowlers in the nation. She just hit the highlight of her career so far by earning a spot on Junior Team USA.
There's one word to describe the Myrtile Beach, South Carolina native... amazing. Maybe it's her ritual, but most likely it's her dedication. Either way, it's strike, after strike, after strike.
Her friends are amazed. "They're kind of just like, wow, you're amazing. I'm so proud of you. I'm like thank you," said Janack.
She started bowling when she was nine and competing when she was 12.
"I wasn't very good. But I practiced and dedicated myself to the sport, and I wouldn't want it way other way."
By age 13 she won her first tournament, and now at age 17, she's earned a spot on Junior Team USA during tournaments in Las Vegas. "I went there, I did my business and I competed the way I wanted to, and I finally got that spot, which has been my dream ever since I was 13."
She's one of the elite who will represent the United States against bowlers from across the world. Janack strives to help the team bring home the gold, but her motivation doesn't stop there..
"My ultimate goal is to compete in the PWBA (Professional Womens Bowling Association) and just win a lot of titles."
Janack will graduate from Carolina Forest High School this spring, and plans to continue bowling and attend Wichita State University. The Junior Team USA bowling tournaments start this summer.
