The Philippine Bowling Federation mourned the death of Angelo Nathaniel Constantino, a bowling coach and gold medalist, who was killed in a shooting incident on Friday.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Constantino family. The bowling community will surely miss the presence of a truly dedicated coach, athlete and champion. God rest his soul,” the federation wrote on its Facebook page Friday.

Constantino, who won the gold in the 1992 World Youth Championship in Venezuela, was shot dead inside a bowling center in Greenhills, San Juan City.
