PETALING JAYA: THE usual suspects romped to the top three spots at the third Selangor Zakat Board’s Inter-Media Bowling Tournament at Megalanes in Sunway Pyramid recently.
In the absence of defending champions Harian Metro ‘A’, it was only a matter of determining the podium finish of perennial favourites RTM1, Kosmo All-Stars and Sinar Harian.
In the end, RTM1 – comprising Abdul Rani Abdul, Mustakim Omar, Azami Mohamad and Boyd Madsam – took the title with a 12-game total of 2,200 pinfalls, and the accompanying RM800, a trophy and food hamper.
Mustakim and Azami also made it a double win each when the former took the Hi-Game (male) title with a 234 score.
Azami also bagged the Hi-Series award with 601 pinfalls. Each won RM100 for their efforts.
Kosmo All-Stars were relegated to second spot after earlier winning the Information Department’s tournament the preceding week.
Md Salmy Man, Rikiman Yusof, Amin Karim and Nor Diana Azis combined for a 2,165 total to win the RM600 prize, a trophy and hamper.
It was a double victory for Nor Diana, who also took the Hi-Game (female) award with her 201 effort.
Sinar Harian, made up of Siti Sarah Ismail, Mizan Mat Tamin, Siti Zubaidah Isa and Subhi Sidin, had to settle for third spot with 1,898 pinfalls.
They took home RM400, a trophy and hamper.
Siti Sarah Ismail also earned a double when she took the Hi-Series title with a 535 total.
Both Nor Diana and Siti Sarah also won an additional RM100 each.
A total of 22 teams, including from the Selangor Zakat Board, took part in the tournament, which was organised with the dual purpose of fostering a better working relationship with the media and to promote bowling as a healthy recreational activity.
The non-placed media teams each received a food hamper.
Presenting the prizes and hampers was Abdul Basith Hamid, the board’s deputy general manager (distribution), who was assisted by corporate communications sector head, Norajun Ainun Mohd Hashim.
The Selangor Zakat Board comes under the auspices of the state’s Islamic Council (or Majlis Agama Islam Selangor)
