“It has been a long time since the Philippine Men and Ladies Teams have had a medal at the World Championships. It is extra special to have won it at the same time. Bronze feels like Gold!” Philippine national men’s team head coach Biboy Rivera said in a Facebook post.

Filipino bowler Merwin Tan ended the Philippines’ 7-year wait for a gold medal at the 20th Asian Youth Tenpin Bowling Championships.
