Live Coverage from the 2006 Men's World Championship



    Asiad Bowling Center in Busan, Korea (Aug. 27 through Sep. 9, 2006)

    2006MWCLogo.jpg The Korea Bowling Congress (KBC) will host the inaugural World Tenpin Bowling Championships for Men from August 27 through September 9, 2006 at the Asiad Bowling Center in Busan.

    This will be the first time the men's worlds are conducted separately from the women. The inaugural women's championships were held in Denmark last year.

    44 countries - almost half of them from Europe (22) with 17 from Asia and mere 5 from the American Zone - have announced to send a delegation to the championships.
