PETALING JAYA: National bowler Sin Li Jane clinched the Euro Med Storm International Masters title in Manila after defeating Cherie Tan of Singapore in the final.
Li Jane, who played in the step-ladder final as the top seed after finishing on top in the Masters Stage Three, beat reigning Malaysian Open champion Cherie 207-190 in the final at the Pearl Bowling Centre on Saturday.
“I was a bit nervous at first,” said 22-year-old Li Jane of her first four frames where she had spares against Cherie’s three strikes.
“But coach Holloway (Cheah) asked me to make some adjustments and after that, I had four strikes in a row to put me in front of Cherie.”
There could have been two Malaysians in the four-bowler step-ladder of the mixed gender tournament if Mohd Rafiq Ismail had not been forced to pull out of the Masters Stage Three.
Rafiq injured his thumb and pulled out with two games left in the eight-game Masters.
In the step-ladder, South Korea’s Park Kyung-shin beat Sweden’s Kim Bolleby 232-182 to book a spot against Cherie in the next step. Cherie, however, defeated Kyung-shin 241-228 to set up a showdown with Li Jane.
