Irish 3-year-old's snooker skills make him a viral star

Recommended Posts

BOORA, Ireland, May 6 (UPI) -- The family of an Irish 3-year-old whose snooker skills made him a viral star said the pool-table prodigy can't tie his own shoes, but he isn't shy about branding himself a "champion."

Bernard Westman said he created the YouTube video compilation of 3-year-old nephew Adam Wynne's best shots at the toddler's request so the boy could see his own skills in action.

"Like any child, he loves looking at himself, and kept asking when he was going to be put on YouTube. We decided to put together some of his best shots and he loves it," Westman told the Irish Independent.

Wynne's parents, Sean and Elaine, have a 6-foot-by-3-foot table at their home in Boora, near Tullamore, and the boy has been training with the snooker stick since he was large enough to hold one, the family said.

Westman said the family was surprised by the viral success of Wynne's highlight video.
