SPORTING HEROES > HALL OF FAME > The National Men's Bowling Trio
The Singapore trio, comprising Lee Yu Wen, Remy Ong and Sam Goh, garnered a total of 3,961 points to beat the Philippines (3,874) and the United Arab Emirates (3,874) for the gold at the 2002 Asian Games in Busan.
Lying in 10th position and trailing by 113 pinfalls after the first set of three games, they made a dramatic comeback when the event resumed. Fired up, they turned the game around to win for themselves, the trio's title.
Before this gold medal achievement in Busan, Yu Wen had earned his first break at the Whitebox Youth Challenge in 1998. Following that, he won a bronze at the 2001 SEA Games.
Sam, on the other hand, is a veteran bowler and has already been inducted into the Hall of Fame for his silver medal performance (duo) at the1986 World Games.
At only 23, Remy, the Captain of the national bowling team was inspiring and exemplary in his performances. Besides the gold medal for the trios, he also won the singles and masters titles.
All three bowlers, outstanding athletes in their own right, did Singapore proud with their inspiring performances.
