Singapore bowler Jazreel Tan started 2015 on a roll when she was crowned Bowler of the Year by the Singapore Bowling Federation (SBF) at the national sports association's New Year dinner on Friday evening.
Tan, 25, enjoyed a stellar 2014, marked by a virtuoso outing at the Incheon Asian Games. In South Korea, the Singapore Sports School graduate bagged one gold, two silvers, and a bronze to emerge as Team Singapore's most bemedalled athlete at the quadrennial continental meet.
Tan is in Sweden for the 35th AIK International Tournament, and was not present for the annual event, held at the Singapore American Club.
Compatriot Joel Tan won the Youth Bowler of the Year award. The 19-year-old grabbed headlines last month when he bowled four perfect 300-pinfall games at the 15th Milo International Junior All-Stars Bowling Championship in Malaysia.
SBF admin manager Shirine Dhillon, who has been working at the SBF since 1993, was presented with an award in recognition for her contribution to the sport.
