Malaysia crowns Bo Long and Zandra as new National Bowling Champions

The 3-days 24th Interstate Bowling Championships 2011 culminated with the Finals of the 35th Malaysian National Championships yesterday. Defending Champions Aaron Kong and Sin Li Jane failed in their bid to retain the titles they won last year.

This year’s Interstate Championships’ results have evoked some lingering memories of the 1st Interstate Championships held at the now defunct Kent Bowl in Petaling Jaya.

I then led a relatively inexperienced Team Sarawak to participate in the Men’s and Women’s categories. There were no Youth categories then. After more than 2 decades, Sarawak has emerged as the Overall Champion for the first time. CONGRATULATIONS Sarawak! I feel privileged to have been a part of Sarawak’s overall bowling development at its infancy stage.

In the Masters Finals to lift the 2011 Men’s and Women’s National Championships’ crowns, it was a close tussle among team members.

All top 3 Masters Finalists after 10 games in both divisions were either in the country’s elite or the recently disbanded elite-backup squads.

Eventual Men’s Champion Kang Bo Long who finished as 3rd seed, had to fend off 2-time former National Champion Adrian Ang (213-190) in the first stepladder round. Hence he set up a challenge with his former elite-backup teammate and top seed Yusuf Abdul Raof in a final stepladder Repechage format (1+1). A first game 226-176 win forced a second match that resulted in him again getting the better of Yusuf with a 244-191 win.

Perfect Day for bowler Siti Shazwani of Malaysia

Although there was a notable absence of many top foreign youth bowlers, this year’s 11th Milo International Junior All Stars Bowling Championship nevertheless posed stiff competition for the younger participants.

Malaysia’s Siti Shazwani ended the Junior All Stars Bowling Championship 2010 with a bang. Not only did she start the Girls Open Masters Finals with a perfect 300 game, but she cruised through the other nine games and ended as top seed riding on 2298 pinfalls. Siti only needed a single 233-208 game to edge Singapore’s Clara Lau in the final step ladder round to cap the title she had set her eyes on from the beginning of the year.
