Ahmed first Bangladeshi to play ten-pin bowling

Asia Pacific Masters Games begins in Penang
Press release

Bowler Musharraf Ahmed Shohel has become Bangladesh’s first athlete to qualify for ten-pin bowling at the 2018 Asia Pacific Masters Games. The eight-day inaugural edition of the Asia Pacific Masters Games, in Penang, Malaysia., begins Thursday, according to a press release.

Ahmed left Dhaka Thursday to represent Bangladesh in Penang. “This is a great honor for me as well as for the Bangladeshi ten-pin bowling athletes ,” said Ahmed who earlier played an international tournament in Melbourne, Australia in April this year.

“So far I know no other sportsman from the country took part in the game. So I am honoured and glad that I will be representing my country through the game I play in Penang. I have already booked a ticket for Penang and hopefully I will be able to make my country proud in the event,” said Ahmed upon his return from Singapore last week where he went for practices of ten-pin bowling, a sport in which a player (called a bowler) rolls a bowling ball down a wood-structure or synthetic (polyurethane) lane and towards ten pins positioned at the end of the lane.

The Asia Pacific Masters Games is a regional multi-sport event which involves participants from the Asia-Pacific region. Organized by the International Masters Games Association (IMGA), it is the first ever Masters Games for the Asia-Pacific region.
