Bowling: S'pore secures medal in the women's trios at IBF Super World C'ships

SINGAPORE – National bowlers Cherie Tan, New Hui Fen, Shayna Ng and Iliya Syamim have secured another medal for Singapore at the International Bowling Federation Super World Championships after qualifying for the semi-finals of the women’s trios on Thursday (Nov 11).

The Republic’s team beat Malaysia’s Siti Safiyah, Natasha Roslan, Faten Najihah and Nur Syazwani Sahar 254-203 in the quarter-finals at the Dubai International Bowling Centre to set up a clash with South Korea in the semi-finals on Sunday.

Teams are allowed to field up to four players in their line-ups, even though this is a trios event.

The other semi-final will feature Guatemala and Colombia, with the winners of each match progressing to the final.

The losing semi-finalists will be awarded bronze medals as there is no play-off for third place.

Tan and Ng are also guaranteed medals in the women’s singles and will compete in the semi-finals on Friday.

In the men’s trios, Darren Ong, Jomond Chia, Jonovan Neo and Cheah Ray Han made it to the match play round but did not progress to the quarter-finals.
