This is what efficiency looks like.

On April 5, New York bowler Ben Ketola used 10 lanes to complete a perfect game in 86.9 seconds, which is believed to be a world record, per M.F. Piraino for Syracuse.com.

The two-handed bowler rolled and ran—there was no time for standing and watching. After going 12-for-12, though, he celebrated.

Ketola, who works at 281 Bowl, said he was inspired by a 2015 video of professional bowler Tom Daugherty, who performed the feat in one minute, 50.99 seconds. Ketola said he bowls at least 50 games a week, and his average is 225.

"It was fun to do. I honestly wasn't expecting to do it," he told Piraino. "I just wanted to see how quickly I could get across the house and get strikes."
