“I am happy that I have been able to grab a silver in my very first Asian Games outing. I think our best is yet to come. It was great that I scored a perfect game but even greater that I won a silver here,” said Shayna.
“I feel great that I was able to get a medal at the Asian Games. I made many errors and thought they were costly ones. But I am glad that it was a 2-3 finish for Singapore,” added Hui Fen.
The two bowling rookies have given the bowling continent something to shout after their seniors Remy Ong, Jasmine Yeong-Nathan and Jazreel Tan failed to make an impact.
