Holder of 2 world records visits Glastonbury

Contributed Article

Bob Holmes is a one man volleyball team who has taken on and beaten the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Toronto Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles with Cal Ripkin and on three occasions the Buffalo Bills. He has appeared in over 5,000 gymnasiums before close to four million people.

He has been featured as a top story for CNN, on CBS This Morning Show and in the USA Today Newspaper. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not just finished a second story on Bob for having played more games than any athlete in the history of the world in any sport and for having tallied over 17,000 wins.

Bob Holmes is often in demand to speak to teens across the nation with an anti suicide, bullying drugs and drinking and driving message. A video of his amazing work can be seen at www.beatbob.com.

Everyone is invited on Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 7pm, to Smith Middle School located at 216 Addison Road in Glastonbury, CT, where Bob Holmes will play against competitive teams, followed by a talk about the events that radically changed him from a young man not at all interested in sports or athletics into a world champion. Seating is limited to the number of people the gymnasium holds so come early. Doors open at 6:45pm. Pizza for all who attend. One large drawing prize will be given.

Glastonbury Baptist Church is sponsoring his visit.
