Russell Villegas, wife Angie and son Renz Martin of the Philippine Embassy teamed up with Ms. Nor Azura Mohd Yusof and Mr. Khairil Zainon of the Malaysian High Commission to compose a 5-man team

    Aside from the Champion trophy, Angie Villegas was awarded the top lady player, scoring the highest pinfalls in the ladies’ division, while the top men’s player was given to the Indonesian player who outscored Russell Villegas by just one pin.

    Two other Embassy players, Julius Checa and Peter Sarabia were teamed up with three players from the Embassy of Myanmar and placed 4th in the tournament.

    Ambassador Ernesto De Leon noted that the Philippine Embassy Bowling Team has been consistently winning top honors in the ASEAN tournament for four years in a row. Other staff members of the Embassy gave cheering and moral support. The highlight of the day however, is the fun and camaraderie shared by members of the ASEAN missions in Canberra.
