PETALING JAYA: Malaysia ended their campaign at the World Youth Bowling Championships in Hong Kong with just one silver after Rafiq Ismail faltered in the boys’ Masters.
The 17-year-old could only manage to finish fifth with a 6,731 total in the second step-ladder at the SCAA Bowling Centre to miss out on the semi-finals.
Rafiq said he had only himself to blame for his exit.
“I didn’t convert enough spares and that pulled me down in the end. In a competition like this, every pin counts. I will practise more on converting my spares when I get home,” said Rafiq.
Malaysia won the silver through the boys’ team event on Wednesday after losing to the United States in the final.
For the record, Malaysia bagged two silvers and two bronzes in the last championships in Bangkok in 2012.
