Iliana Lomeli and Emmanuel Buenrostro: from Mexico to Shanghai

The 2016 QubicaAMF Copa Mexico, Mexican Qualifying tournament finished with outstanding participation. A record number of bowlers participating in the tournament making it the highest in the last 10 years!

Bowlers from all over the country gathered to take part in a weekend full of bowling. They had to bowl 24 games in 3 days to win a place in the finals – only the top 4 seeds went through. On the women’s side Iliana Lomeli made her way into the finals as the # 4 seed and beat in the final match the PWBA Mexican Star and previous QubicaAMF BWC finalist in Las Vegas, Sandra Góngora. The 2-game thriller won Iliana the right to be the Mexican female representative in the 52nd QAMF BWC for the third time in her career.

In the men´s division the battle centered first in the semifinals game with two current PBA members, Humberto Vazquez vs Julio Cesar Blancas, competing to beat first timer #1 seed Emmanuel Buenrostro.

Julio had to strike on the 10th frame to advance but a ringing 10 made him fall short allowing Humberto to advance to the final match against the little known Emmanuel. Emmanuel bowled with all the class of a champion and in one single match retained his position as leader of the tournament beating Humberto Vazquez and earning his place as Mexico’s representative in Shanghai.

This tournament was conducted by QubicaAMF Mexico and it is one of some tournaments that they organize to show their commitment to keep growing the sport of Bowling.
