|Synopsis||One of eleven children and of part Aboriginal descent, Bob Appo was born in Childers, Queensland, Australia, in 1932. Bob Appo - The Most Colourful Bowler in Australia tells, in his own words, how he overcame early colour prejudice to become one of the best bowlers on Australia's Eastern Seaboard. His outstanding achievements included: winning 12 of 13 finals the first year that he played in competition at Burnett Bowls Club in Bundaberg; while playing for Gladstone winning the club's singles title 13 times; becoming the first coloured bowler to represent the State; and winning the Champion of Club Champions of Queensland in 1980.
Playing a competitive sport requires much dedication, drive and ambition, yet to truly enjoy your chosen sport requires a keen sense of humour, sportsmanship and dignity. Bob Appo is one of the true sportsmen who has achieved this.
