Silver lining, but coach Remy wants more from Asian Games bowlers

FIGHT-BACK: (From left) Jazreel Tan, New Hui Fen and Cherie Tan recover from sixth spot to clinch the silver medal with 3,753 pinfalls in the women's trios event.

There were plenty of high-fives from Singapore’s Cherie Tan, New Hui Fen and Jazreel Tan at the women’s trios event at the Anyang Hogye Gymnasium yesterday. 

Their fiery-eyed emphatic slaps could be heard from behind the spectator stands, matched by their blazing form on the lanes, as they recovered from sixth spot to clinch the silver medal with 3,753 pinfalls. 

They were sandwiched between two South Korean teams in first and third spots. 

Lee Na Young, Jung Da Wun and Son Yun Hee won the gold with 3,896, while Lee Yeong Seung, Jeon Eun Hee and Kim Jin Sun (3,692) took bronze.

Singapore’s other threesome — Daphne Tan, Joey Yeo and Shayna Ng — fell from second spot on day one to finish seventh with 3,041 pinfalls. 

Despite the silver lining, national coach Remy Ong believes that he can coax more from his charges.

KEY PLAYER: Feng Tianwei can’t afford any slip-ups against world No. 2 Japan in the absence of Yu Mengyu (above).

Alongside her teammates, she stood at attention and bowed on the competition floor of the Suwon Gymnasium in Incheon yesterday, as Singapore's women's table tennis team were introduced to the crowd. 

But something was amiss - Yu Mengyu was not dressed for battle.

While the other four - Feng Tianwei, Lin Ye, Zhou Yihan and Isabelle Li - had stripped down to their playing attire, Yu was still decked in track pants.

The 25-year-old did not take to the table in Singapore's 3-0 win over India in last night's women's team quarter-final because of an old back injury.

She will play no further part in the Asian Games, which does not bode well for the Republic's hopes of advancing to the final.
