National bowler Sin Li Jane finished second at the Brunswick Euro Challenge in Munich, Germany in March
SINGAPORE: The Orchid Bowl sure feels like home for national bowler Sin Li Jane.
It was, after all, at this venue – at the Orchid Country Club – that the 23-year-old scored back-to-back Singapore Open wins between 2013 and 2014.
So, it would be a homecoming of sorts for Li Jane as the venue hosts the bowling competition for the Singapore SEA Games. The men's and women's singles events begin on Tuesday.
“I feel at home here ... it feels good to be back on these lanes,” said Li Jane.
“It’s definitely different from the lanes back home but I feel comfortable playing on these lanes and environment.
“The wins (in 2013 and 2014) have definitely helped give me that feeling.”
At the Palembang SEA Games in 2011, Li Jane won a silver in the women's singles. She also won a bronze in the team-of-four with Jacqueline Jenelee Sijore, Zandra Aziela Ibrahim Hakimi, Sharon Koh and Zatil Iman Abdul Ghani.
There was no bowling in the 2013 Myanmar Games.
The 2014 World Cup runner-up knows this is a good chance for her to pick up a gold at the biennial Games.
“I hope to win gold. I missed it in 2011. Practice has been good and all I need is to be a little more patient with the pins here,” she said.
