BOWLING : Far From Over

"It is tough juggling a bowling career with other commitments. As an elite squad member, I need to strictly follow the training regime. It is definitely my last Asian Games as I don't think I will be around for another four years."
Also a two-time world champion, Shalin, 36, has been in the national team since she was 13-years-old.
Known for her aggressive approach on the lanes, Shalin's most memorable outing was competing in the Professional Bowlers' Association (PBA) Women's Tour in the United States five years ago.
With several newcomers in the elite squad preparifgng for the Asian Games, critics claim the team will not pose a serious threat to world champions South Korea in the six-event competition.
However, Shalin, a bronze medallist in last year's World Championships in Nevada  disagrees with critics, stating her team will challenge for medals in Incheon.
"The newcomers in the elite squad are progressing well in training. I believe they will get better as the season progresses. All they need is exposure in high-level tournaments to gain confidence.  The seniors and juniors will form a strong team for the Asian Games," said Shalin.
Yesterday, Shalin turned on a mesmerising display in the Inter-State and National Championships to clinch the women's singles gold medal. She posted lines of 258, 226, 190, 216, 215, 236 for a total of 1,341 pinfalls, averaging 223.5.
Former world ranking masters champion Siti Safiyah Amirah Abdul Rahman finished second with a 1,277 total followed by two-time world champion Esther Cheah on 1,233.
"I can't remember how many times I've won titles in this tournament. However, I am happy with my scores today (yesterday). It indicates progression ahead of the Asian Games," Shalin added.
