A first for KL Leg Champions

The 4 champions showing off their hard earned medal.

All 4 Champions of the KL Leg were firsts, firsts in coming out tops in their respective categories. Congratulations to Timmy Tan (KUL), Natasha Roslan (SEL), Mohd Syafiq Aiman (KEL) and Norsyamimi Sarfa (KUL). For 3 of them, it was also their first time in the Top 8 and I'm sure, as Norsyamimi, the Girls Graded Champion expressed, "I was nervous", the same was felt by the other 2.

As for Natasha, her win this time was a first in the Open Category. She has had her fair share of glory in the Girls Under-12 Category in 2008 and in the Girls Graded Category in 2009. She is making good progress this year moving up the ladder from the 1st Leg in Kedah where she was 6th. She was 3rd in the 2nd Leg in Perak and runners-up in the 3rd Leg in Melaka early last month and here, she came up tops.

The Boys Open and Graded champions, Timmy Tan and Mohd Syafiq's road to success was a definite boost to their bowling career. After 3 years of training, their hard work paid off.

Timmy who is training under Jonathan Chung is a Form 4 student from SMK Sultan Abu Samad. He is 1 of 3 bowlers who has been invited by the Singapore Sports School to participate in an Under-18 competition from June 7-11.

During that same period, Syafiq will be representing Kelantan in the SUKMA games in Melaka. Mohd Zakimi Zainudin who is Syafiq's coach and also the Head coach of the Kelantan squad said that Syafiq's achievement here in KL is a good motivation for Syafiq to do well in SUKMA.

Earlier that day, in the Under-12 categories, Perak's Tun Ameerul Al-Hakim and Selangor's Ayra Nur Jehan achieved their second circuit title when they outplayed their opponents. Both of them were over a hundred pins more than the 2nd placed bowlers.

Once again, CONGRATULATIONS and WELL DONE to all champions and also to all that participated in the 4th Leg of the year. See you all in Pahang at the end of this month for the 5th Leg.
