Nick Brett is best known for bowling the world’s most famous bowl but he wrote a new chapter of his legacy with a Commonwealth gold at Birmingham 2022.
The “Brad Pitt of Bowls” became a viral sensation when his physics-defying bowl at the World Indoor Championships in 2020 racked up millions of views online.
Despite his celebrity status in the world of lawn bowls, the five-time World Indoor champion had to wait until 2022 to get his Commonwealth call.
Before the pandemic, Brett was dominating social media with his pinpoint bowl penetrating a gap of miniscule gap of less than six inches to get to the jack in the pairs final.
The Peterborough-born bowler is vastly experienced and in 2020 narrowly missed out on being the first player to complete a sweep of World Indoor titles in the same year, losing out on a tie-break in the singles – a title he lifted in 2016 – to Robert Paxton after lifting the Pairs and Mixed Pairs trophies.
