Wales Makes History at the World Bowls Championships
Wales competed against players from 33 nations in the World Bowls Championships from the 29th November until 11th December in Christchurch, New Zealand. Commonwealth Games medallists Robert Weale, Anwen Butten, Marc Wyatt and Jonathon Tomlinson were among the 10-person Welsh squad taking part.
Daniels and Jess Sims made history for Wales at the championships by winning Gold
in the women’s pairs final against New Zealand. Along with this fantastic
result, Emma Woodcock, Anwen Butten and Kathy Pearce won the Silver medal for
the women’s triples against Australia. This is Anwen Butten’s fifth World
Championship medal to add to her two Bronze Commonwealth Games medals.
