Mel Isaac - Memories from Sixteen years ago

“Winning felt amazing; - as it always does whenever you win at anything! I also couldn't wait to tell my parents who have always supported me 110%. Someone lent me their mobile to make the call as mobiles weren't as widespread as today. How old does that make me sound!? But thank you to that person and telling my dad 'I had done it.' It was very emotional.”

We were both 19, youngest Champions in the history of the World Cup, both in college, both of us were first time participants, both of us brought our parents with us to the event and it was a great story for the press. Many of the other participants said they were going to bring their parents next year since we were the only bowlers that had both mom and dad there with us.”
