Colombian bowler Clara Guerrero won the Masters Gold medal at the World Women’s Championships in Las Vegas Sunday.
A day after winning Gold on the ‘all-events’, a combined classification of several individual events, Guerrero was again successful in Sunday evening’s Masters final.
The Colombian lacked focus in the first few games but woke up in time to beat Siti Safiya Amirah, Putty Armein, Son Yun-Hee and Hwang Sun-Ok.
The match against the latter Korean was one that wouldn’t be decided until the very end. It was only when Hwang left a split that Guerrero took advantage to secure the victory.
“Last night, I felt really relieved and excited because i had won all-events, and this morning, I just wanted to come in and throw good shots. I may have been a little too relaxed this morning, and today ended up being quite a roller coaster ride,” Guerrero said shortly after winning her Gold medal.
The 27-year-old from Armenia, who now lives in Austin, Texas, began to gain international recognition in the early 2000’s and is now considered one of the top players on the women’s bowling tour.
