2018 World Championships - Doubles Medal Round

Malaysia has long been a country that has been in the hunt to win gold medals at past World Bowling Men’s Championships but always seemed to come up a little short. The lone exception was the gold medal Malaysia won in the 1979 trios event.

Now, the Malaysians have won two gold medals in two days at the 2018 World Bowling Men’s Championships after capturing the doubles event Sunday.

Adrian Ang and Tun Hakim defeated Team USA’s EJ Tackett and Andrew Anderson, 433-370, in the gold-medal match at the South China Athletic Association Bowling Centre in Hong Kong. The victory came a day after Rafiq Ismail won the singles gold medal for Malaysia.

Results: World Championships Doubles Medal Round

Hakim fired a 228 game, while Ang shot 205 in the title bout, while Tackett had 196 and 2018 PBA Player of the Year Anderson only managed 174.

It was the second straight day the United States was left disappointed after a medal round. During Saturday’s singles medal round, Team USA finished with a pair of bronze medals with Anderson and Kyle Troup losing their semifinal matches.

In Sunday’s doubles semifinals, Tackett and Anderson put up a big game in defeating Korea’s Park Jongwoo and Kim Kyungmin, 495-377. Tackett shot 259, while Anderson had 236.

Malaysia’s Hakim fired 262 in the other semifinal, while Ang shot 196 to defeat Canada’s Dan MacLelland and Francois Lavoie, 458-412. It was the second medal of these World Championships for MacLelland, who earned the silver in singles.

Also Sunday, the bottom half of the team event field bowled their final three games. The top half of the field will complete team qualifying Monday. Those final three games will also determine the all-events medalists.

The medal round for the trios event will also take place Monday at 5 a.m. live on FloBowling for audiences in North America. The trios medal round will feature Korea vs. Team USA and Indonesia vs. Sweden in the semifinals with the winners meeting for the title.
