Krizziah Lyn Tabora leads a highly motivated Philippine team in the World Tenpin Bowling Championships, which kicked off on Friday in Las Vegas.
Tabora hopes to ride the momentum of her recent success in the 53rd Qubica AMF Bowling World Cup as the squad, composed of six men and six women, vie against equally competitive bowlers from 42 countries.
With Tabora are Liza del Rosario, Alexis Dy, Bea Hernandez, Lara Posadas and Liza Clutario in the women’s team, and Jumar Jumapao, Kenneth Chua, Raoul Miranda, Merwin Tan, John Paule Macatula and Kevin Cu in the men’s squad.
“I hope I can continue the momentum to the world championship,” Tabora said. “It’s been a good year for me.”
The Philippines clinched a bronze medal in the women’s team of five in the Malaysia 29th Southeast Asian Games and bagged silver in the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Turkmenistan earlier this year.
On top of her bonus from the Philippine Sports Commission, Tabora received out-of-pocket incentives from Senators Manny Pacquiao and Tito Sotto, a former national bowler.
The Senate also commended Tabora’s achievement with a resolution filed by Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III last Tuesday.
