Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

ISLAMABAD—Pak­istan Ten­pin Bowl­ing Fed­er­a­tion (PTBF) will field a four-mem­ber strong out­fit in the World Ten­pin Bowl­ing Youth Cham­pi­onship 2016, sched­uled to be held at Lin­coln, Ne­braska, USA, from July 24 to Au­gust 3 .

“Our team is com­prised of four best bowlers - Pak­istan num­ber 1 Ah­mer Ab­bas Saldera, Ali Suria, Daniyal Shah and Yaseen Jan”, Sec­re­tary PTBF Ijaz-ur-Rehman told APP on Wed­nes­day.

Ijaz, who would him­self ac­com­pany the bowlers as coach said that a 15-day train­ing camp would be ar­ranged at Leisure Bowl­ing Club Islamabad to pol­ish skills of young bowlers.

He said Pak­istan team would par­tic­i­pate in in­di­vid­ual, dou­ble and team events of the cham­pi­onship. Last time Pak­istan took part only in the in­di­vid­ual event in which Ah­mer fin­ished at 32 out of the 100 bowlers. How­ever, Ijaz sounded op­ti­mistic that Pak­istan ath­letes would pro­duce bet­ter re­sults this time. “I’m hope­ful we’ll be able to fin­ish among top ten teams this time”, he said. The World Youth Cham­pi­onship is bowl­ing’s most pres­ti­gious event for young ath­letes.

The best youth bowlers from around 100 coun­tries of 21year and un­der will par­take in the Cham­pi­onships, which are held once ev­ery sec­ond year. The last event was held in Hong Kong in 2014. —APP
