The pilot of the Cessna 172 aircraft made a normal approach in light wind conditions for runway 21. During the landing roll, the aircraft initially tracked to the right side of the runway before slewing heavily to the left. As a result, the propeller struck the runway, bending the tips of both blades back at right angles. A maintenance investigation did not reveal any defects that may have contributed to this occurrence.
