Kegler Shayna Ng became Singapore's second World Champion when she won the 48th QubicaAMF World Cup in Poland yesterday.

Czech Republic 1 Poland 0
In the streets of Poland, they will shake their heads in disbelief that such a thing could have happened.
The scenes on the streets outside were ugly, but the football inside was beautiful.
This morning's (May 09) Euro 2012, Group A encounter between co-hosts Poland and Greece proved a point - the 1-1 draw reflected the resilience of the Greeks.
In full voice, the Polish fans turned the National Stadium into a colosseum where gladiators chewed up the intruders on demand. Alas, victory wasn't Poland's.
Hope springs eternal in the Polish capital, the land of hard knocks, as co-hosts Poland take on Greece in the opening match of Euro 2012 tonight.
