DISABLED bowler Peter Orr is preparing to defend his national title this year.
The 65-year-old from Kilmarnock won gold in the wheelchair section of the Scottish Disability in Sports (SDS) outdoor bowling championships.
The competition was held at Westburn Park Bowling Club, Aberdeen, in September.
Peter bowls for North Ayrshire Sports Association for the Disabled (NASAD) and trains at Irvine Park Bowling Club.
He won the national title in only his second time of competing in the championships.
Peter said: “I was so chuffed.
“It was the first time I had won such a big competition. I’ll be out to defend the title this year.”
