-Czech Bowlers Are Country's First-ever World Cup Representatives

06/18/2002 - AMF Bowling
      LONDON, ENGLAND, June 14, 2002 - Vera Vachova and Jiri Hindrak have won the right to be the Czech Republic's first-ever representatives in the annual AMF Bowling World Cup.

      Vachova and Hindrak earned their berths by capturing the Czech AMF Cup 2002 national finals, which were held May 24-25 at Sportcentrum Hotel Duo in Prague.

      Vachova, a 33-year-old housewife from Revnice (birthplace of tennis great Martina Navratilova), advanced to the Round of 8 by averaging 174 in qualifying and placing seventh in the 20-woman field. She defeated Jana Lebrova in the quarterfinal match, 2 games to 0 (202-143, 195-192), and top-seeded Dana Hurkova in the semifinal round by an identical margin (204-164, 196-170) before turning away Ilona Pospisilova in the championship bout, 2 games to 1 (196-170, 172-203, 201-163).

      Hindrak, a 39-year-old construction entrepreneur from the Eastern Bohemia city of Trutnov, leveraged a 204.5 qualifying average into a second-place seeding for the Round of 8. He wasted little time dispatching Martin Lips and Pavel Cermak by identical 2-0 victory margins (219-172/182-157 and 203-179/182-122, respectively) before knocking off Petr Bilik, 180-165 and 180-171. Sixty-three men competed in the inaugural Czech AMF Cup.

      Vachova and Hindrak join previously announced World Cup qualifiers Diane Buchanan and Merlin Bunnage of Canada on the roster for the 38th edition of AMF's international fall sports classic. Athletes from more than 90 countries are expected to compete at the 24-lane Toss Boulinga Halle in Riga October 19-26.
