Syafiq Rhidwan Abdul Malek – Malaysia’s First AMF Bowling World Cup Champion



Shayna Ng of Singapore and Syafiq Rhidwan Abdul Malek of Malaysia are the Qubica AMF Bowling World Cup champions for 2012 after a stunning display in the stepladder finals, held in the Sky Bowling Centre in Wroclaw, Poland. The men’s first match saw Syafiq beat Andres Gomez of Colombia in three games. Andres won the first game 236 to 234 but Syafiq came back with 224 and 258 to Andres’ 201 and 213. Syafiq moved on to play Marshall Kent of the USA for the title. He bowled steadily and won by 2 games to nil, 236 and 237 against 225 and 221.  He said afterwards:

I think I was lucky to play on the championship lanes first. I learnt how to play the lanes and I got better carry in the final match.  It is such an honour for me and my country as I am the first Malaysian player to win this wonderful tournament.

His win actually means that Malaysia and the USA are tied for top country but the trophy goes to Malaysia as one of their players won the title. Read more HERE.

      No Problemo ehhh..
      AMF ni actually company yg supply peralatan bowling mcm lane bowling, bola etc. Agak besar namanya dalam sukan bowling. So AMF World Cup to refer pada kejohanan dunia dgn tajaan AMF sbg sponsor utama.
      Pro bowling cuma di US shj. iatu PBA Bowling. Tempat2 lain di dunia ni cuma amatur atau semi-pro. Cuma utk kejohanan2 dunia kebelakangan ni byk di buka kepada pro juga.
      Tenpin Bowling rujuk kepada sukan boling dalam dewan. Ia untuk membezakan dgn boling padang (lawn bowling).
