Bowlers end on a solid display

Bermuda wrapped up their World Tenpin Bowling Championships journey in Hong Kong with a solid display in the prestigious team event.

Only the top 26 countries out of the 55 that competed throughout the tournament qualified for the final day of bowling with Bermuda battling it out with some of the world's best nations.

Up against some really stiff competition, Bermuda finished in 24th-place overall as Italy caused a major upset, taking the honours after defeating the highly fancied United States of America in the final showdown.

Bermuda's contingent, made up of Rickai Binns, David Maycock, Damien Matthews, Lamar Richardson, Dennis Joel, Akeem Talbot and reserve Blake Raynor will return to the island on the back of some promising displays at the tournament, which takes place every four years.

Competing in the trios event Bermuda's two teams did themselves proud with the first team of Matthews, Binns and Maycock finishing a respectable 24th place out 91 teams, while their second team made up of Joel, Talbot and Richardson battled their way to 83rd place overall.

In the individual discipline, Maycock and Binns more than held their own among the strong field of 266 competitors with Maycock in 74th and Binns close behind in 77th.

“Overall I was pleased with the teams performance” said Bermuda Bowling team manager Steve Riley. “We had some really good results over the course of the tournament.”
