2014AsianGamesLogo.jpg The XVII Asian Games got underway on September 19th in Incheon, South Korea, and run through October 4th featuring more than 9000 athletes from 25 countries, who will compete for medals in 36 sports.

The Asian Games, a.k.a. Asiad, is a Pancontinental multi-sport event held every four years among athletes from all over Asia. Bowling made its debut in 1978 (Bangkok, Thailand) and returned in 1986 (Seoul, Korea) and was part of the Games in each event since 1994 (Hiroshima, Japan).

The Bowling competition of the Incheon Asian Games will be contested Sept. 23 – Oct. 2 at Anyang Hogye Gymnasium bowling center.

177 players, 103 men and 74 women, from 19 countries – China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Japan, Kuwait, Macau, China, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Yemen and the host country Korea – will bowl for gold, silver and bronze medals in Singles, Doubles, Trios, five-player Teams, All-Events and Masters.

Technical delegate John Janawicz, United States, has chosen a 36-feet short and a 46-feet long lane conditioning pattern. See also the Kegel Lane Map Report.

Competition gets underway on Tuesday, Sept. 23, with Men’s Singles. The winners in Singles (long oil), Doubles (short oil), Trios (short/long) and Teams (long/short) will be determined in six games. The winner in All-Events is the player with the highest 24 game total of the four disciplines.

The top 16 women and top 16 men in All-Events, but maximum two per national Olympic Committee, advance to the Masters finals Oct. 1 & 2. Those 16 bowl two eight-game blocks of Round Robin match play – first block on short, second block on long oil – to determine the top 3 players for the stepladder finals, which will conclude the Asian Games bowling competition.
