Ten-pin bowler Jason Belmonte, and his wife Kimberly, welcomed a son named Hugo in April this year. Hugo Belmonte joins big sister Aria, aged 2.
Jason is from Orange in New South Wales, and began bowling at the age of 18 months. He has been competing since the age of 3, and won his first event at the age of 4. At 17 he became the first Junior Australian to bowl a 300 game overseas, and won several gold medals as a Junior Champion. Since then, he has gone on to win dozens of sporting awards and titles. Last year he was voted “Best Bowler” by fans at the ESPY Awards. He competes professionally in the PBA League in the United States, has four PBA titles, and lives in the US. He is known for using the two-handed “shovel” style to deliver his shot.
