Zulkiflis end 24th Southeast Asian Games bowling competition with victory in Mixed Doubles



    SF Strike Bowl Ramkhamhaeng in Bangkok, Thailand (Dec. 6-14, 2007)

    2007SEAGamesLogo.jpg Shalin Zulkifli and Zulmazran Zulkifli (no relation) from Malaysia won the gold medal in Mixed Doubles at SF Strike Bowl Ramkhamhaeng in Bangkok, Thailand, the final bowling event of the 24th Southeast Asian Games.

    Biboy Rivera and Liza Del Rosario, Philippines, earned the silver medal while Yannaphon Larp-aparat and Angkana Netrviseth from the host country Thailand received the bronze medal.

    It was the first medal for the Philippines in 11 disciplines - men's and women's Singles, Doubles, Trios, Team and Masters and the Mixed Doubles event. The gold medal in Mixed Doubles marked the fourth gold for Malaysia but the sole with a male bowler involved. The Malaysian women earned the titles in Doubles, Trios and Team.

    The Malaysians failed to win an individual gold medal. With the four gold medals the team barely fulfilled the target set by the Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress (MTBC). However, the team was far away from their best SEA Games result in 1999 in Brunei (7 gold - 6 silver - 2 bronze) and also from the "big gold-medal haul" which deputy chef-de-mission Zaiton Othman was expecting. Othman was quoted in the Malaysia Star newspaper "A four-gold target is modest one (target) indeed. I think they are capable of winning more."

    Singapore won three gold medals including the men's Masters (Remy Ong). Indonesia claimed two titles as Sharon Limansantoso (Masters) and Tannya Roumimper (Singles) won both individual titles in the women's division. The host, Thailand, also earned two gold medals in men's Doubles and men's five-player Team.
