Singapore’s keglers Remy Ong and Jason Yeong-Nathan have won the silver medal in the men’s doubles bowling competition at the Asian Games.
They were tied with Japan’s Shogo Wada and Tomokatsu Yamashita for second place.
Ong and Yeong-Nathan averaged 215 and 233.5 pinfalls respectively for a total of 2,691 pinfalls.
However, they were 20 pinfalls behind Malaysia’s Adrian Ang and Alex Liew who took the gold medal.

Said Ong after the game, “I’ve worked with Jason for a good 8 years now and I’ve not seen him so focused. He carried the team today.”
“People will be celebrating the silver medal, but there is a big thorn in my heart now. It is painful to lose out on gold after coming so close. I will pluck it out in the Trios and bring home the gold for Singapore.”
Singapore’s medal tally now stands at four silver and two bronze.
