Mixed Kiwi/Aussie Ten Pin medal results

Posted in: Out Games News
By Daily News staff - 16th March 2011

New Zealand and Australia have more or less level pegged in the medal stakes for the Ten Pin Bowling competitions which held most of their finals today.

New Zealanders have taken gold in the Men's Team finals, with Auckland's Hot Gossip rising above two Australian teams, the Bent Pins and the Malaroos who gained Silver and Bronze respectively.

However, the positions were reversed in the Women's Team finals, with the Aussies, Sydney Systers 4 winning ahead of Kiwi teams The Jafas, who won silver, and Valvet Alley with the bronze.

In the men's singles competition Australians scooped all the men's A Grade medals, with the Kiwis doing better in B grade with a gold for Gerry Hughes and a silver for Aaron King. Australians took the first two places in the women's singles, leaving the bronze for Kiwi Leanne Weaver.

The men's A grade doubles final was pretty much an all-Aussie affair with the Australians winning gold and bronze and a combined Oz/NZ team taking silver. It was a better result for New Zealand in the men's B Grade finals. Australia scooped up the gold while Team Wellington and AGBO Odd Couple were the silver and bronze medalists.

The New Zealand women were overshadowed by the Aussies in the doubles finals, with our Tasman neighbours winning gold and silver, leaving bronze for Kiwi pair The Gingers.
