Oiling machine fuels success of PH bowlers
Four-time world champion Bong Coo has attributed the national bowling team’s string of success to the oiling machine that they acquired recently.
Coo, the manager of the team who helped reorganize the Philippine Bowling Federation with boxing great Paeng Nepomuceno, said simulating the oiling conditions in the 2017 World Bowling Championships would serve them well in the country’s bid to land another world title.
“Today’s equipment plays a big role on the success of our bowlers. It’s the way how the balls are made plus the importance of oiling conditions,” said Coo.
The men’s and women’s bowling squad left for Las Vegas Wednesday in time for the world championships beginning Friday until Dec. 4.
Krizziah Tabora, fresh from winning the World Cup ladies title, is seeking to duplicate her feat with teammates Liza Clutario, Liza Del Rosario, Alexis Sy, Lara Posadas and Bea Hernandez.
Kenneth Chua will banner the men’s side along with Jomar Jumapao, Kevin Cu, Jaypee Makatula, Merwin Tan and Raul Miranda.
