Men's team standings after Day 1

Mike Fagan "sat out" for the US men, who were only 34 pins behind the medal position after the first day. Ten teams were over 3,100 on the day, four of them over 3,200. Amleto Monacelli had a 726 series to lead Venezuela into the top position, while Achim Grabowski of Germany had a 300 game.

Women's team standings after Day 1

Missy Parkin "sat" for the women, but the Americans are 91 pins out of the medal position in 8th, showing their shortcomings on the short pattern. Six women's teams were over 3,000 on the day, with Korea the only women over 3,100. Bernice Lim of Singapore had the high series of the day for the women with a 677.

Qualifying for both the men and women ends tomorrow on the medium pattern, and the all-events medals will be awarded.

Men's team semifinals:

Korea v. Finland
USA v. Denmark

It ended up that Chris Barnes needed a mark in the last frame to get the #1 seed for the USA, but left a 7-10 in the pocket. Finland posted a total near 3,500 on the medium pattern today to get into the medals, while Achim Grabowski of Germany and Hareb Al Mansoori of the United Arab Emirates had 750 sets, with the latter also putting up a 300 game, along with Ricardo Lecuona of Mexico.

Women's team semifinals:

USA v. Venezuela
Malaysia v. Korea

The Team USA women were dominant on the medium pattern, outscoring Colombia by over 200 pins in posting a total close to 3,500. Three of the Americans posted 700 series, led by Shannon O'Keefe's 753, and the only series better individually was posted by Lisanne Breeschoten of the Netherlands with a 769.

Final men's all-events standings

Gold: Chris Barnes (USA)
Silver: Cho Young-Seon (KOR)
Bronze: Bill O'Neill (USA)

Barnes won all-events by better than 200 pins and should probably be safe in tomorrow's first round of the Masters. Mike Fagan, John Janawicz, and Tommy Jones are the other Americans in the top 24, Jason Belmonte, Choi Bok-Eum, Amleto Monacelli, Dan MacLelland, and Osku Palermaa the international notables in the Masters.

Final women's all-events standings

Gold: Shannon O'Keefe (USA)
Silver: Son Yun-Hee (KOR)
Bronze: Diana Zavjalova (LAT)

Shannon O'Keefe's big set in team today meant a US sweep of the all-events gold medals. Kelly Kulick and Liz Johnson join O'Keefe in the Masters, while some of the international notables in the top 24 are Caroline Lagrange, Jazreel Tan, and the Marcano sisters.

The first two rounds of the Masters for both the men and women take place tomorrow, followed by the team semifinals (women first).

Going women first, then men on everything...

Women's Masters semifinals:

Kim Moon-Jeong (KOR) v. Ryu Seo-Yeon (KOR)
Liz Johnson (USA) v. Son Yun-Hee (KOR)

The Koreans dominate the women's Masters, but Liz Johnson today showed why she's one of the best match play bowlers in the world, climbing into the top 8 from 14th and then winning four of her seven matches.

Men's Masters semifinals:

Chris Barnes (USA) v. Kim Jun-Yung (KOR)
Cho Young-Seon (KOR) v. Shin Seung-Hyeon (KOR)

Three Korean men will also win Masters medals, but Chris Barnes won the #1 seed by 250 pins and is the heavy favorite.

Women's team semifinals results:

USA def. Venezuela 1014-921
Korea def. Malaysia 1065-966

Missy Parkin came up big for the American women in the semifinals in putting up a 259 game, while Lee Na-Young had a 247 in the Koreans' match. It should be noted that the Americans actually set a women's three-game team series record for a World Championships yesterday during qualifying, and getting the #1 seed as a result was important, as it prevented Korea from being able to take the short pattern in the finals, on which the American women largely struggled.

Men's team semifinal results:

USA def. Denmark 1050-973
Finland def. Korea 1101-976

The American men trailed the Danes early on after Bill O'Neill and Chris Barnes both had back-to-back open frames (O'Neill the first two frames, and Barnes in the 2nd and 3rd frames), but the turning point of the match was the 6th frame...Barnes started striking and Bill O'Neill and Tommy Jones soon followed, and it was in that 6th frame that the Danes could only muster two spares. Tony Ranta and Pasi Uotila led the Finns to the upset of the Koreans to set up a rematch of the gold medal match from the 2010 World Men's Championships in Germany.

The tournament comes to a close tomorrow, starting with the Masters semifinals for both the men and women, followed by the women's Masters finals and then the men's Master's finals. Then the coveted team gold medals will be decided by first the women, and then by the men. As sk8shorty01 has mentioned, Bowl.com will have everything on a live stream on the USBC's YouTube channel, BowlTV (a UStream stream will be available in places where YouTube is blocked).

Unless anyone wants to further the discussion, this should be my last post to this thread. First, the Masters results...

Women's Masters

Gold: Son Yun-Hee (KOR)
Silver: Kim Moon-Jeong (KOR)
Bronze: Liz Johnson (USA), Ryu Seo-Yeon (KOR)

Semifinals: Son Yun-Hee def. Liz Johnson 232-213, Kim Moon-Jeong def. Ryu Seo-Yeon 208-180
Finals: Son def. Kim 211-193

Men's Masters

Gold: Cho Young-Seon (KOR)
Silver: Chris Barnes (USA)
Bronze: Kim Jun-Yung (KOR), Shin Seung-Hyeon (KOR)

Semifinals: Cho Young-Seon def. Shin Seung-Hyeon 237-223, Chris Barnes def. Kim Jun-Yung 226-214
Finals: Cho def. Barnes 254-195

A Korean sweep of the Masters, with Chris Barnes having to settle for silver in the men's competition. Barnes got off to a slow start in the gold medal match, but Cho bowled well enough to have what Barnes did not really matter. As an aside, the men's and women's Masters winners are husband and wife.

Finally, the gold medal matches in the team events:

Women: Korea def. USA 1159-992

The American dominance on the medium pattern didn't matter to the Koreans, who were led by Kim Moon-Jeong and Lee Na-Young with a 267 and a 246, respectively. Kelly Kulick (224) turned out to be the only American over 200 in the match.

Men: Finland def. USA 1183-1126

Team USA was clean except for just one open frame in the gold medal match and still lost to the Finns, who were led by Pasi Uotila's 279 with Petteri Salonen also having a 258, with Tommy Jones (257), Bill O'Neill (248) and Chris Barnes (235) doing the heavy lifting for the Americans. John Szczerbinski replaced Mike Fagan in today's lineup, and Szczerbinski only shot 192, meaning Team USA head coach Rod Ross will likely be second-guessed about that move. It should also be noted that Finland won without the services of Mika Koivuniemi, who chose instead to assist in coaching Denmark at these World Championships.

Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates will host the next two world championship events for adults, the men next year and the women in 2015. Before svengali asks, all WTBA member national bowling federations will be invited to send teams to both of those events.
