    Asian Youth Games: Singapore bowler New Hui Fen wins country's first gold medal


    SINGAPORE: Singapore has won its first gold medal at the inaugural Asian Youth Games (AYG), and achieving that feat was bowler New Hui Fen in the girls' singles event.

    The 16-year-old Sports School student recently won the Malaysian Open Girls' Masters Championship, and she continued her winning ways at the AYG, scoring 1,359 pinfalls in total for the gold.

    Japan's Misaki Mukotani won silver with 1,314 pinfalls and Korea's Oh Nu Ri took the bronze with a score of 1,308 pinfalls.

    New's win was all the more sweet as the president of Singapore Bowling had pledged S$2,000 and an equal amount was contributed by Orchid Bowl. The competition was held at the Orchid Country Club.

    New said: "I just focused on my pre-shot routine and... just concentrated on each frame, and not the whole game itself."

    Community Development, Youth and Sports Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said: "This is great news, we are all very happy with that, but I also want to add that the entire Singapore team is doing well.

    "Our sailors are nicely positioned, and the table tennis team... I'm sure (they) will make good progress. I just want all Singaporeans to really come out and support Team Singapore."

    Team Singapore's bowlers are expected to add to the medal tally over the next few days of competition.

    Hong Kong also won its first gold, when Michael Mak topped the boys' singles with a total of 1,396 pinfalls. South Korea's Park Ji-Soo was second with 1,381, while his compatriot Hwang Dong-jun took the bronze.

    Just heard over the news our bowlers landed our 2nd Gold Medal? Anyone can verify?


    So are we finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel for local sports?

    1 Gold and 2 bronze on the snice day 1!

    Hi Mel,

    was really happy for TEAM SG for getting its 1st Gold Medal.

    But would like to emphasize on the point that, We are playing in our home ground, Eg. would you know your house better or your friend ? Team SG trained hard on the lanes in OCC, they were there every week at least twice (*was there when they were training ) therefore it would strongly boost the knowledge of the bowlers about conditions of lane in there.

    just a 5 cents worth of thoughts from me. Sorry if anything above doesnt sounds too good.
    Nevertheless, keep cheering for them !

    Was in Team SG youth in Year 2005. So know a few of them in the team now.

    Techinically speaking, for other sports Eg. Table Tennis, we are very familar with Jing Jun Hong, Wang Nan and following are all from China but because they got citizenship from our officials so that they can play for the country.

    So theoretically speak its 100% Singaporeans, but practically, not all born in SG.
