Kuwait Bid for Glory

July 1st, 2010  |  Published in Breaking News

Perttu Jusilla’s 1388, set in Squad 5, still remains supreme but it was strongly challenged from the leader of the Kuwait quintet, their Mohammad Kamel leading Squad 6 with 1371. He rolled six good 200-plus games but the final 211 needed to be in the

high 220s to take over as tournament leader.

“I think Munich is a really nice place, this is a good bowling center and a good tournament,” remarked Kamel at the end of the squad. “I can’t say that the lanes are easy for me, but it shouldn’t be easy to be nice. This is really a good place to bowl. I don’t think there is a big difference from pair to pair, it really depends on who you are following (as you change lanes). If you’re following left-handers you have a better chance. As I say, it depends on which squad you bowl and who you are following.

“I’ve been bowling in Kuwait for twelce or thirteen years, but seriously for only about seven or eight years. I’m on the Kuwait national team and we are here to check out the place. The World Championships is a very important tournament for us.

“I’m a fresh graduate from Kuwait University with a marketing degree and right now I’m just bowling to practise for the WMC 2010. ”

Asked how the team like Aussie Andrew Frawley as their coach, Kamel replied: “Andrew is like a big brother to us. Having coached us for five or six years he has taught us a lot and we appreciate what he does for us.”

Whilst Kamel rues losing the lead by 18 pins, he can be pleased with being the squad winner and therefore get a pass into Sunday’s finals, which will give him time to visit the beautiful city of Munich.

England’s Dominic Barrett, fresh from a second-place fnish in the cocatoos tournament in Cyprus last week, came home with 1342 to be second on this squad and Finland’s Petteri Salonen held third.

In the overall standings after six squads, Kamel is in fifth place, just two pins behind American PBA stalwart Chris Loschetter from Cleveland, Ohio.
