SEATTLE, WA - Justin Malfitano of East Brunswick recently represented the state of New Jersey at the Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle earlier in July for bowling. He beat the national favorite in the Men’s High-Performance division to be named the best bowler in the nation taking home a gold medal, also earning him a front-page article in the Seattle Times Sports section. He also received a gold medal for the Men’s Double division and finally captured a silver medal for the Team competition.
During the team match play, Justin missed a perfect game by throwing two 9 pin spares and rolling a 268. While bowling in the team event, he was filmed by an ESPN film crew and was later featured in a spot with his father, Sal Malfitano during the day's daily recap on ESPN's Sports Center.
Here is the video from ESPN featuring Malfitano and his team.
