Paris Baker's love of bowls came from an act of love.
At first, 15 year-old Paris hitched a ride to the bowling club with her dad, Dave Makasini, just because the bowling club was near a mall.
When Dave had a stroke, Paris started to play games with him, as a way of helping him recover. It turned out she was a bowls star in the making.
In this episode of Voices, RNZ Pacific sports reporter Talei Anderson tells the story of how Paris took her talent to the world champs and won.
