SINGAPORE - National bowler Jasmine Yeong-Nathan finished in third place in the women's Masters event at the Asian Tenpin Bowling Championships on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old was beaten 224-177 by South Korean Jung Da Wun in the semi-final of the stepladder, settling for bronze. She had earned a place in the stepladder finals, reserved for the top three bowlers, after climbing from fifth place following the first block of eight games on Tuesday.

Jung eventually beat teammate Baek Seung Ja for the gold, triumphing 440-364 over two games.

Singapore's Joey Yeo finished in fifth place, while Daphne Tan was 14th.

The team finished the Asian Championships, which started on Sept 17, with two bronzes, having earned a medal in the team event earlier.

Said Yeong-Nathan: "It's been very exhausting, I would say. But it's the same for all championships - long hours in the alley, always tough lanes.

"No doubt everyone was trying the best that they could. We made moves together as a team, worked well as a team."
