THE Philippines’ Krizziah Lyn Tabora easily rolled into the second round of the 53rd Bowling World Cup women’s international finals Thursday in Hermosillo, Mexico but the other Filipino entry -- Jomar Roland Jumapao -- failed to survive the men’s competition.
Tabora, getting a shot at the world plum for the second time since the 2012 finals in Poland, carded a 24-game series of 5098 to land eighth and claim one of the 24 second-round slots topped by consistent frontrunner Jenny Wegner of Sweden, who averaged 227.21 for a total of 5453 pinfalls.
Germany’s Vanessa Timter tallied 5283 to come in second while Colombia’s Rocio Restrepo posted 5258 for third place.
Jumapao, a national bowler from Cebu, managed to score only 4757 pinfalls in 24 games to land in 33rd place in the tough, week-long kegfest.
Malaysia’s Ahmad Muaz Mohd Fishol leapfrogged from 11th to top spot after the 24-game first round round with 5334 pinfalls.
The USA’s Jakob Butturff checked in second with 5298, followed by Colombia’s Oscar Rodriguez (5252), Belgium’s Mats Maggi (5249) and Italy’s Nicola Pongolini (5232).
