Stefanidis opened his account with 190 and 180 then fired on all cylinders with games of 266, 213, 188 and 244 to win gold with the total pinfall of 1281.

The silver medal was taken by Habib Dogan of Ankara, Turkey, just 14 pins behind the champion, and the bronze was clinched by Italy’s Marco Reviglio from Turin.

20-year-old Stefanidis, a keen bowler for the past ten years, was pleased with his first medal in the Mediterranean Challenge Cup. “I have won medals in the Youth Championships,” he said. “At the start here I bowled well but in the third game the lanes opened up and I did very well. I did good on lanes 1-2 with a 266.”

Apart from Stefanidis, the medals came down to the final balls of the tenth frame of the last game, with Israel’s Lior Yizhaq Koren and Michael Wood from Gibraltar also in the hunt for a place on the podium when the medals are presented on Saturday evening.

Stefanidis and Gibraltar’s Michael Wood claim the high game of the event to date, both rolling a 266 in the third game of the Singles.

The record 13-nation event will see the women take to the lanes Thursday afternoon. Tomorrow the disciplines switch to Doubles for both divisions and then the first three of six games in the team event.
