United States women wins doubles gold; Asbaty maintains All Events lead

    09/23/05

    2005 AmZ Championship

    Metrobowl in San José, Costa Rica - September 18-28, 2005

     L-R The United States pairing of Diandra Asbaty and Lynda Barnes withstood a furious charge by Canadian's Isabelle Rioux and Kerrie Ryan-Ciach to win gold in doubles Thursday. Barnes and Asbaty stayed clean in the final frame, however, to secure the top medal with a score of 2489. Canada finished with 2471 and won silver while the Marcano sisters from Venezuela took bronze with 2423.

    Asbaty and Barnes started the day on the long pattern (41 feet) with their best doubles game (475) and then shot their lowest (377). The pair rebounded to shoot 436 in the finale to secure the gold.

    "It feels great to win a gold," Barnes said. "I was so frustrated with not winning gold at the Women's Worlds in Denmark so this feels really terrific."

    Action continues Friday with the first three games of trios.
