NATIONAL: Brent PAULING (NFK) (The Norfolk Islander, 11 Nov 2017)


Reason: "I played golf and tennis and when Norfolk got into the Commonwealth Games (1986), a mate said to me there's no tennis, so come to bowls." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)
Ambition: Win a medal at the Commonwealth Games. "I want a bloody medal." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)
Memorable: "Winning the Bounty Bowls (international tournament on Norfolk Island) five times, and winning it back-to-back this year (2016, 2017)." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)
Hero: Australian motorcyle racer Casey STONER. "A girl from home was taught to ride a bike by him. He's just awesome." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)
Influence: Norfolk Island lawn bowler Syd COOPER. "He got me into bowls. He is the best all-round sportsman on the island and I've played numerous times with him, and there isn't many tournaments I haven't won when I've been on his team." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)
Ritual: "I don't like using power equipment, like a chainsaw, before I play as it affects my bowls. I'm also quite regimented in how I play. For example, if I put my bag in a particular spot I don't like it when someone moves it." (Athlete, 15 Jun 2017)

BOUNTIFUL CLAIMS
Claims to be a descendant of Fletcher CHRISTIAN, the officer on board the HMS Bounty, who led a mutiny against the captain, William BLIGH, and then settled with the ship's crew on Pitcairn Island in 1789. Queen Victoria allowed the entire population of Pitcairn Island (194) to relocate to Norfolk Island in 1856. (telegraph.co.uk, 24 Jul 2014)
