A South African does it again! Francois Louw flew the flag high in Indonesia, winning the 55th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup.
Palembang, Indonesia – The 55th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup final took place over the previous weekend, and a South African man walked away with the top title!
The 55th Bowling World Cup was hosted in Palembang, the capital city of South Sumatra in Indonesia. It ran from the 16th of November to the 24th of November 2019.
Francois Louw made history by becoming the first South African to win a Bowling World Cup title. A Johannesburg resident, he says the last few years have been hard mentally, but this win has lifted his spirits and then some!
In an excited post on Facebook, Francois shared his thanks to his family, friends and supporters saying,
“Absolutely dumbfounded. Woke up a World Cup Champion today. It’s funny how this sport can beat you into the ground and make you dig yourself out again.
I honestly had no expectations this week in Indonesia. The last two years have been draining mentally.”
Francois defeated Indonesia’s Ryan Lalisang, 237-202 to nab the World Cup. After his win, Francois spoke about the most hair-raising part of his final game. He got a foul but still managed to smash his way to the victory!
“I haven’t fouled in about 11 years and what is worse, it was a great shot! I just tried to put it out of my mind and carry on. Wow! It’s coming home! It’s been great. Thanks for everything!”
We are so incredibly proud of Francois and excited to have yet another big win for South Africa to add to our list.
