PETALING JAYA: Malaysia again ended up empty-handed at the World Bowling Championships in Nevada, the United States, after both the teams failed to qualify for the men’s trios semi-finals on Sunday.
Adrian Ang-Zulmazran Zulkifli-Timmy Tan could only manage an 11th placing with a 3,815 total while Mohd Syafiq Ridhwan Abdul Malek-Alex Liew-Mohd Rafiq Ismail suffered a meltdown and dropped from 11th after three games to 27th with 3,674 pins.
Canada clinched the gold through Mark Buffa-Francois Lavoie-Patrick Girard after they beat favourites Choi Bok-eum-Cho Young-seon-Kim Jun-yung of South Korea 721-602 in the final.
Adrian was the best Malaysian performer with lines of 228-223-194-203-248-249 for a 1,345 total.
He, however, was far from satisfied with his performance.
“It was a good day but the score wasn’t high enough. I was too engrossed with my game that I didn’t even notice that we overtook the other Malaysian trio,” he said.
Adrian and Co will now look to break the medal drought in the team event, which starts Tuesday.
“The coaches will decide on who will play in the five-man team. We will see what they have to say.
“We will try our very best because it is the only event now where everyone can go back with a medal,” said Adrian.
