9-year-old Fla. girl bowls perfect 300, sets record

A 9-year-old girl from Seminole, Fla., has become the youngest U.S. Bowling Congress member to roll a "certified 300 game" -- 12 consecutive strikes -- according to Bowl.com.

Hannah Diem warmed up with two games, scores of 204 and 226, before rolling her perfect game on Sunday.

Hannah's age at the time: 9 years, 6 months and 19 days. She broke the previous record for youngest perfect game bowler, defeating a boy who was 10 when he bowled his perfect game in 2006.

For the bowlers out there who may be wondering, Hannah uses a 12-pound ball.

The win was no fluke. Hannah bowls in several leagues, practices when she's not competing, and bowls in tournaments on weekends. She took home a ribbon for her singles division in the Fla. State Youth Tournament last year.

Next challenge? Hannah is hoping to compete in youth championships in Buffalo, N.Y., next summer.
