Thursday, 20 August 2009 00:00

A small NZL team competed at last weekend’s 16th Senior and 2nd Junior Pacific Rim Championships held in Taipei, Taiwan.

The team consisted of Calum Burn (SM -90), Moira De Villiers (JW -70, SW -70, SW Open), Natasha Downing (JW -57, SW -57), Justine Bishop (JW -52, SW -52), and Jacky Fong (SW -48). Ten countries competed, including large teams from Japan, Korea, Chinese Taipei, and Australia.

The successful team members were Moira de Villiers (gold in JW, silver in SW, and 5th in SW Open), and Natasha Downing (bronze in JW, 5th in SW). Moira built up to this event with 3 European Junior Opens, gaining a 5th and a 7th place, and beating last year’s European Junior champion in the process.

The next Pacific Rim event will be held in Noumea, New Caledonia in 2011.
