Aussies Descend on Hong Kong for 5th World Menís Championships

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

The Australian menís team has begun arriving in Hong Kong for the 2018 World Bowling Menís Championships, which begin on Sunday.

Winning three bronze medals at the Menís World Championships in 2014 in Abu Dhabi, the Australianís head into 11 days of competition across singles, doubles, trios, teams, all-events and Masters Competition as genuine medal hopes.

Team Australia will be led by 2014 World Menís bronze medal winner, Sam Cooley.  For Cooley itís been a huge couple of weeks after the 27-year-old became only the second Australian male to win the prestigious QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup, defeating fellow PBA bowler Kyle Troup 244-163 in the final in Las Vegas.

After a challenging year on the pro tour, Cooleyís win will boost the teamís confidence before the singles qualifying gets underway on Sunday morning at the South China Athletics Association Bowling Centre (SCAA).

Joining Cooley will be his 2017 World Combined Championship teammates Jarrod Langford and Lachlan Merchant who also have experience at the 60-lane centre, having competed at the venue in the 2016 Asian Championships.

Adam Hayes, Blayne Fletcher and Michael Murray will also add strike power to the team who will come up against the powerhouse nations of the USA, Korea and Sweden.

With 50 countries competing at the 5th World Menís Championship from across the African, American, European and Asian Zones all the action will be streamed via the World Bowling website.
