In 2015, Malaysia emerged as the overall champion for bowling with a total of 10 medals, including five golds, at the Singapore SEA Games. Sin Li Jane was one of the members of the team that saw to that victory. The 25-year-old, along with her partner Esther Cheah, contributed to a gold in the women’s doubles as well as in the women’s team-of-five event. In 2011 at the Palembang SEA Games, she won a silver in the women’s singles and a bronze in the team-of-four. There was no bowling in the 2013 Games.
But beyond the biennial Games, Li Jane has accomplished a slew of titles at other world-standard competitions with one of the most recent ones being a champion at the prestigious Professional Women’s Bowling Association (PWBA) Tour, specifically the Lincoln Open. She is the second Malaysian player to claim a PWBA Tour title.
For the 2017 SEA Games, the bowling events will be offering 11 gold medals and Li Jane joins Shalin Zulkifli, Siti Safiyah Amirah Abdul Rahman, Syaidatul Afifah Badrul Hamidi and Natasha Roslan for the women’s team. We managed to catch up with her for a quick chat on her upcoming preparations as well as a game of bowling. Watch the video below to see how Buro 24/7 Malaysia’s Senior Lifestyle Writer Rachel Au fared against our national athlete.
The bowling events are happening from 20 till 25 August at Sunway Mega Lanes in Sunway Pyramid. Admission is free.
