HONG KONG tenpin bowling star Wu Siu-hong has shown that he did not win all the kudos for simply being young. In a display of sheer composure, the reigning world youth champion came back from the bottom of the 16-player pool in the third set to finish second in the Youth Masters Finals (boys' division) of the Boysen-PBC International Open Tenpin Bowling Championships in Pasig City, Philippines. Wu, double winner at the Hong Kong Sports Stars award in March, and a five-time recipient of the Sports Development Board's Outstanding Junior Athlete award, scored a total of 2,121 points in 10 frames, 37 fewer than the champion, Frederick Ong of the Philippines. Ong's compatriot Jeremy Posadas finished third with 2,096. Hong Kong team official David Chiu was pleased with the 18-year-old's performance. 'He was simply amazing,' said Chiu. 'He was down by more than 140 points after the third frame, but he just kept his cool and regained his ground step-by-step.' Another Hong Kong bowler in the same division, Cyrus Cheung Chun-chung, finished 11th with 1979 points. Chiu attributed Cheung's rather sub-par performance to a recent shift in form. 'Cyrus [Cheung] only started using a new style of bowling very recently and if we take that into consideration, the result is still very satisfying. He will need time to adjust.' Both Wu and Cheung, 20, can now set their sights on the men's division, in which Wu leads all bowlers, including teammates Eric Lau Kwok-yau and Kent Li Chiu-ting, with 1801 points after eight frames. The other Hong Kong bowlers taking part in the competition are Vanessa Fung Suet-yee and Cookie Lee Siu-lin, who are playing in the women's division.
