Bowlers not bothered by pressure

The pressure to deliver at the 2015 SEA Games will be great, but Singapore's bowlers are up for it.

Shayna Ng, the Singapore Bowling Federation's Bowler of the Year, said: "With home advantage also comes high expectations from your own crowd.

"We have a world-class bowling team. We have the determination to win and I believe that the bowlers now can meet the expectations."

In 1993, when Singapore last hosted the SEA Games, the bowlers delivered three gold, one silver and four bronze medals.

The golds were from Alice Tay (women's singles), Adelene Wee (women's Masters) and

Patrick Wee, Sam Goh and Jack Wong (men's trios).

However, Ng (left) is not at all worried about matching that tally.

She said: "That will be tough to match, I admit, but I guarantee that the bowlers will give their all in training and preparation. I hope that the crowd sees that we will do our very best, no matter what."
