National bowling queen Shalin Zulkifli emerged champion in the women's singles category of the 25th Asian Tenpin Bowling Championship, held in Kuwait recently.

Being a 'senior' at 41-years-old did not stop the champion from recording 1,498 pinfalls, to edge out her main competitor - Indonesian Nadia Pramanik, who felled 1,492 pins, on the first day of the tournament on Tuesday.

Malaysia's Sin Li Jane recorded 1,471 pinfalls to emerge third and sweep the bronze medal in the same category.

Timmy Tan won the gold medal in the men's singles category while Esther Cheah and Sin Li Jane got bronze in the women's doubles category.

Astro is a sponsor of the championship, which kicked off in Kuwait on Oct 20, and Malaysia has already bagged a total of 4 medals - 2 golds, and 2 bronzes.

The tournament will go on until Oct 30.

In the Hong Kong championship three years ago, Malaysia won three gold medals, two silvers and four bronzes.
