And the show goes on

After the championship dust settled, we moved on to the awards banquet for the 53rd QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup. Here we recognized our newest champions who then awarded the Sportsman and Sportswoman award, as well as the top country.

After the bowling had finished, two titles remained to be decided.

The top country this year, winning the Bent Petersen award, was Colombia with Rocio Restrepo and Oscar Rodriguez. It was very close and went to Colombia over Malaysia on pinfall.

And then came the awards for sportsman and sportswoman of the tournament, chosen by the players themselves. The awards went to Lluis Montfort of Catalonia and Aumi Guerra (our champion in 2010 and 2011) from the Dominican Republic.
