International players cash in during WSOB VIII

Ads


It’s not an inexpensive proposition for international players to travel to Reno to compete in the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VIII, but a substantial number of the international players have cashed in on their investments.

After the four animal pattern rounds and the PBA World Championship cashers round, representatives from Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, Germany, Poland, South Africa, Sweden and Venezuela earned prize money. That’s 10 of the record 23 countries entered earning a cash prize.

Overall, 83 different players in the field of 169 earned checks. That’s just a hair shy of half the field earning at least one check in WSOB VIII.

“Other cashers” means rewards for PBA50, PBA60, women bowlers

In recognition that age and gender do, in fact, play a role at the highest levels of competition, the PBA established special $300 cash awards to reward the highest-placing PBA50, PBA60 and women bowlers outside of the regular top 24 prize list for each animal pattern round, and special $650 cash prizes in the PBA World Championship.

The “other cashers” were:

Good news, bad news for Colombia’s Anggie Ramirez

2016PBAAnggieRamirezRight before the GEICO PBA World Series of Bowling VIII got underway, Anggie Ramirez (pictured), a native Colombian now living in Austin, Texas, returned to her home country to compete in the Colombia National Championships. The good news is, she swept all six women’s gold medals: singles, doubles, trio, team, all-events and Women’s Masters.

The bad news? After struggling through the PBA Scorpion Championships qualifying round, Ramirez stared at her badly swollen thumb and said, “This is what I got for bowling so well in Colombia.”

Ramirez is one of eight women competing in WSOB VIII.
