Chinese Taipei’s Lin, Wang sweep titles in ABF Tour Thailand leg

Ads


Lin Pai-Feng and Wang Ya-Ting of Chinese Taipei swept the men’s and women’s title in the curtain-raiser to the 2108 Asian Bowling Federation Tour season Sunday at Blu–O Rhythm & Bowl Siam Paragon in Bangkok. It was the first career ABFT title for both players.

Lin (right) rolled a 300 game during the 44th MWA-Singha Thailand International Open, which served as qualifying event for the ABFT Thailand leg and won three one-game matches before he defeated Han Jae Hyeon of Korea in the men’s title match, 229-221.

Needing a strike in the 10th frame to win the match (note The ABF Tour is using the World Bowling Scoring System), Han (left) got eight pins only to hand the title to Lin.

Lin started the tournament with a 223-214 win against compatriot Hsieh Chin-Liang in the round of 16, then edged Akaash Ashok Kumar of India in the quarterfinal by three pins (234-231) and Syafiq Ridhwan (right) of Malaysia in the semifinal by just two pins (224-222).

Han was the top scorer in the event, defeating Hong Kong keglers Ivan Tse, 286-189, and then Lau Kwun Ho, 286-253, before he eliminated Surasak Manuwong (right) of Thailand in the closest match, 246-232. Han averaged 258 for his four games.

50-year-old Lin received a US$500 bonus and a trophy in the made-for-TV event. Han got S$300 for second place, while Surasak and Syafiq received US$150 apiece for third and fourth place.

In the women’s division, Wang Ya-Ting (left) downed Tannya Roumimper of Indonesia, 200-180, to give Chinese Taipei a clean sweep, winning both the men’s and women’s title.

Like Han, Roumimper (right) had a chance to win the match with a strike in the 10th frame, but the Indonesian fell short as she suffered a split.

The 200 was the low game of the day for Wang, who ousted Malaysians Siti Safiyah (233-231) and Hee Kar Yen (255-245) before defeating her fellow countrywoman Chou Chia-Chen (right; 268-223) in the semifinals.

Roumimper had some hard work to do before eliminating Lee Sim Gyeol of Korea (256-232), compatriot Nadia Pramanik (228-224) and another Korean, Lee Hyeon Gyung (right; 244-222).

Wang pocketed US$500 and was awarded a trophy. Roumimper received US$300 for second place and Chou and Lee each got US$150 for third and fourth place.

The top 16 Asian men and women in the 44th MWA Singha Thailand Open advanced to the ABF Tour Thailand leg. The 2018 Asian Bowling Federation Tour features four legs in Thailand, Macau, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei.

The next stop of the ABF Tour will take place in Macau, China, on June 24 following the 2018 Macau China International Open Tenpin Bowling Championships June 17-23 at COTAI International Bowling Center.
