WORLD BOWLING TOUR RANKINGS TIGHTEN FOLLOWING MALMO STOP

LAUSANNE, August 30th – Following the conclusion of the World Bowling Tour Malmo stop (also known as the Storm Lucky Larsen Masters) which saw Jason Belmonte triumph over a field of 450 players from 22 countries, the men’s and women’s World Bowling Rankings have tightened in competition.

Still leading the field for the men is USA’s Marshall Kent after his Oklahoma Open win on 273 points, ahead of England’s Dominic Barret on 249, despite neither having competed in Malmo.  Yet Sweden’s Martin Larsen, Australia’s Jason Belmonte and Anthony Simonsen from the USA all competed at the event winning points that have put them hot on the heels of the number one and two ranked players.  Larsen remains in third position on 227, Belmonte jumps to fourth on 220 and Simonsen is bumped down to fifth on 216.

We see a similar trend in the Women’s rankings where by USA athletes Danielle McEwan and Liz Johnson maintain their lead but with far fewer points difference than before the Malmo stop.  McEwan now leads on 445 to Johnson’s 230 and Colombia’s Anggie Ramirez, a new entry into the top 10, makes third position on 228 points.  Other new entries to the top ten women’s lists are USA’s Liz Kuhlkin in 5th position, Ingelimar Beasley from Venezuela in 8th position and Sweden’s Jenny Wegner in 10th.

The top 10 Men’s & Women’s Rankings are as follows:
