Karnataka’s Prathima Hegde and Aishwarya Rao kick-started their team’s campaign in style by bagging the gold in the women’s doubles event in the Canara Bank 5th National Tenpin Bowling Championship currently underway at Blu-O, Orion Mall, here.
It was a comfortable outing for the duo, who scored 2189 pinfalls, beating their nearest rivals and teammates Judy Bobby and Pooja Hegde by a margin of 100 pins.
Prathima, on a comeback trail, bowled steadily and scored 1092 pinfalls (161, 181, 203, 174, 193, 180) whereas Singapore-based Aishwarya, who has just completed her 12th standard, overcame a nervous start in first two games (141, 146) and finished in style in the next four games (218, 188, 193, 211) with a total of 1097 pinfalls.
It was a close competition for the bronze position with Delhi and Tamil Nadu fighting it out with each other until the last frame of the event. Delhi’s mother-daughter duo of Anuradha Sarda and Sugandha Sarda eventually lost out by one pin to Tamil Nadu’s Sabeena Saleem and Fridy Rose. Team Tamil Nadu posted 2058 pinfalls with Sabe-ena scoring 1095 pinfalls and Fridy 963.
In the Women’s All Events, 18-year-old Aishwarya Rao (Karnataka) leads the pack with total pinfalls of 1097, followed closely by Sabeena Saleem (TN). Prathima Hegde (Karnataka) is in third position, trailing the day’s leader by five pins.
The highlight for Prathima is that she has won her fifth consecutive gold in the Women’s Doubles event in five editions of the National Team Championship including this one.
