Saturday Singles Individual Competition Round 1 commenced at midday (Australian Eastern Standard Time), with blocks following at 2.15pm, 4.30pm and the evening session at 7.15pm.
Australian Sam Cooley summed up today perfectly “with this kind of event, it is the very best of every country – there are no pushovers”. Cooley stood strong to finish as the leader of Group B.
American Bryanna Cote and Germany’s Sabrina Laub topped their groups, with USA’s Cote making the highest average for the women on Day One. Speaking with Bryanna after her Block, she said that the “Conditions were playable, it was a clear picture on what you needed to do and just keep the ball in play and make your spares– so just keep it simple and hit the one in front and make the spare, if you strike – great.”
With no plans to change balls or her strategy of ‘keeping it simple’ Bryanna commented “I am not going to change anything about the balls I use, unless I see something different from the ladies tomorrow, and I will just keep it simple with an open mind”
Both Cote and Laub said they were enjoying the Sunshine Coast with the excellent weather affording them the opportunity to walk on Alex Beach as part of their daily routines. On the Event location – Group A Leader Martin Larsen from Sweden commented “I have been bowling in the national team for 25 years and I think this is the best location ever – it is really far from home – but the bowling centre, the beach, the food, everything is top notch so far.”
James Blomgren from Sweden created the highest average for the men with 220.9, with the female equivalent highest average coming from the USA’s Cote on 227.02.
