My Niece is a Double Gold Medal Winner!!

The IV Commonwealth 10-pin Bowling Championships are taking place in Belfast.

Team England, which includes my 22-year old niece Joanne Allsebrook (known to all as JoJo - see pic) are doing extremely well.
Team England consists of JoJo, Zara Glover, Paul Moor and Darren Cundy. JoJo and Zara won the Women's Doubles and the team has won the Team event. Paul & Darren took Silver in the Men's Doubles and Zara finished top of the "All Events" table.

The final event is now underway. In the "Masters", the top 12 bowlers in the male and female competition battle it out for the title. After 6 games (halfway through) Jo is leading the Women's table with Zara in 2nd place and in the Mens Masters, Paul Moor is top of the table and Darren Cundy is 3rd.

Six more games then the top three in each table play for the overall title.

Good Luck Guys!

Update Sunday - Jo finished third in the Masters and adds a Bronze Medal to her two Golds.
