    Rakan Al Amiri of Kuwait and Milki Ng of Hong Kong (pictured l-r) emerged as men's and women's champions in the Asian Bowling Federation Tour Hong Kong leg Wednesday at South China Athletic Association Bowling Center in Hong Kong, China. It was the first victory on the ABF Tour for both players.

    Al-Amiri, who finished 12th in the 39th Hong Kong International Open, which served as the qualifying event for the fifth event on the 2013 Tour, flew past Hareb Al-Mansoori, UAE, in the title match, 222-151.

    The Kuwaiti rolled another three big scores on his way to the title match. In the opening Round of 16, Al-Amiri eliminated Hong Kong Open champion Zoe Dais Ma, Macau, 248-202. He then sidelined Hong Kong National team member Wicky Yeung, Hong Kong, 254-216, before he survived a close semifinal match against Sithiphol Kunaksorn, Thailand, 212-211.

    The women's single-elimination finals featured 12 players from Hong Kong and three from Macau. After finishing in 19th place in the Open, Milki Ng, Hong Kong, had a bye in the opening round before she defeated three compatriots on her way to the title.

    She won her Round of 8 match against former Asian ranking champion Chan Shuk Han by one pin, 169-168 and edged Leong Mei Sheung in the semis by five pins, 189-214.

    Ng saved the best for last defeating Gloria Yung, who had high games of 229 and 222 in the previous round, in the championship match, 200-159, to secure the women's title.
