PETALING JAYA: After two days of competition, the young bloods in the men’s elite bowling squad have come up with the goods thus far in the Inter-state Championships at Sunway Mega Lanes in Sunway Pyramid.
On Wednesday, new recruit Jonathan Ding Sagan teamed up with Isaac Russell Paul to grab the men’s doubles gold medal for Sarawak with a total of 2,698 pins after six games. Daniel Tan-Christopher Tiong made it a 1-2 for Sarawak as they knocked down 2,557 pins for the silver.
Syed Mohd Hafiz Syed Hussein-Muhd Nur Aiman Khairuddin of Johor took the bronze.
It was an encouraging result for the new recruits in the elite squad, as Timmy Tan nailed the singles gold medal for the Federal Territory on the opening day.
“I’m really happy with our performance today. I think I bowled quite well and Isaac did his job well too,” said Jonathan.
In the women’s doubles, Selangor’s pair of Siti Safiyah Amirah Abdul Rahman and Shalin Zulkifli edged Sarawak duo Jackelyn Ng-Jocelyna Judith to the gold medal.
Siti-Shalin knocked down a total of 2,508 pins, just five pins ahead of Jackelyn-Jocelyna on 2,503. Selangor’s other pair Selva Nashini-Natasha Roslan settled for the bronze on 2,437.
In the boys’ doubles, Selangor increased their gold medal tally to four over two days, when Mohd Aizudeen Mustaqim-Mohd Hafiz Fikri won with 2,497 while Qalif Adnor Adam-Mohd Firdaus Idris of the Federal Territory took the silver on 2,439. Another FT pair Prasert Anansathaporn-Cheah Yun Ren settled for bronze on 2,418.
Where the boys faltered, FT’s girls excelled when they grabbed the girls’ doubles gold medal through Nur Syazwani Sahar-Nora Lyana Nastasia with a 2,644 total.
