KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia produced yet another young bowling world champion when Jacqueline Jenelee Sijore defied the odds to win the women’s singles gold in awesome fashion at the Women’s World Championships in Hong Kong yesterday.

The 19-year-old debutant kept her cool despite a jittery start to beat hot favourite Son Yun-hee of South Korea 266-217 in the final to become the country’s second women’s singles champion.

Esther Cheah became the first and youngest world champion when she took the gold medal in the same event at the age of 17 in 2007 at Aalborg, Denmark.

Learn Bowling Skills Online

After a short hiatus from the bowling scene to recuperate a medical condition, I am happy to announce that my online coaching site is now available.

There are tons of good free bowling information readily available in cyberspace, but not many that actually teaches step-by-step a full syllabus that ensures you understand exactly why and how a certain bowling technique should be delivered.

I have always been a sucker for the basic fundamentals of bowling. I also know that this builds discipline…a very important ingredient in a good bowler.

In setting up BOWLEXCEL Online Academy, I hope more bowlers will have access to a proper bowling roadmap that ensures you are able to take your bowling to a higher level.

Many benefits await members in your own members-area, including a private forum where you can have your questions answered. You will also have access to step-by-step video tutorials on basic bowling drills.

You can check out the benefits of being a BOWLEXCEL member here:
