A team of lawn bowlers from the Bali International Lawn Bowl Club traveled to Kuala Lumpur to participate in the 3rd Asian Lawn Bowl Championships in early July and returned victorious. Along the way, the Indonesian players representing Bali created a bit of bowling history, becoming the first country to ever win a medal in their first appearance.
During the games held in Kuala Lumpur July 5 – 12, 2003, Bali player twenty-three year old Ana Rahmad finished second behind Commonwealth Games (2002) gold medalist Sita Zalina Ahmad in the women's singles event. In Kuala Lumpur, Indonesia fielded an eight person team comprised of five men and three women.
Shortly thereafter, Ana Rahmad won a gold medal in the Asia V's Europe Classic Challenge leading the triple's team that sailed through the tournament undefeated (6 - 0). Because of her stellar performance, Ana has been invited to participate in the Asian All-Star team and will represent the region in future international bowling events.
The Bali Team, originating from the Bali International Lawn Bowl Club, is largely comprised of newcomers to the game who only commenced their interest in the sport when the Bali Club opened two years ago.
