S'pore women win bowling team gold at Asian Games
After suffering from patchy form and falling short twice at the Asian Games, the Republic's bowling women have managed to turn silver into gold, winning the women's team of five event.
With 6,119 pinfalls, the quintet of Cherie Tan, Daphne Tan, Shayna Ng, New Hui Fen and Jazreel Tan beat a thus-far dominant South Korean team (6,048) to the finish line, with Indonesia (5,840) a distant third.
After tabulating scores, Jazreel Tan has come away with another bronze medal, finishing third (5,013 pinfalls)
The win takes bowling's Asian Games tally to three, a gold and two silver medals in the women's singles (Jazreel Tan) and women's trios (Jazreel Tan, Cherie Tan and New).
A part of all three events, Jazreel Tan has emerged as the Republic's current top performer at the Games.
The women's gold medal is Singapore's second of the Games, after swimmer Joseph Schooling's win in the 100m butterfly.
Singapore's tally reads: two gold, four silver, and nine bronze.
