    08/13/05

    2005 WWC

     Malaysia's Esther Cheah waited till the last frame to secure the gold medal in the Singles event at the Women's World Championships in Denmark. After missing an 8-pin spare in the 9th frame, the 19-year-old needed a mark and an 8-count to overtake Zhang Yuhong from China by one pin.

    Cheah finished with strike spare en route to win the title with 1296, six-game total and an average of 216. Yuhong, who led since the second squad, earned silver with 1293. The biggest surprise was Squad #1 leader Annelize du Pisani who took bronze with 1285. Both, Yuhong and Pisani, won the first-ever medal for their countries in a World Championship.
