Just when she thought her junior bowling career was over, Jaymee Sidel got the call she had been waiting for. The Victoria, BC native is off to the 2016 World Junior Bowling Championships in Queensland, Australia at the Broadbeach Lawn Bowling Club http://www.broadbeachbowlsclub.com/ Canada was offered another sport in the tournament after a participate from another Country was able to attend.
“I could not be more excited to represent Canada.” said Sidel. “After the 2014 Tiger Bowls and China Open, it has been my greatest wish to wear my team Canada jersey again at an international competition.” This is Sidel’s last year of eligibility for the prestigious World Junior event and she is determined to give it her all. “I will be stepping up my training by focusing my efforts on my bowling tactics and improving my overall athleticism.”
Sidel will compete in women’s singles and the mixed competition. It’s not Sidel’s first taste of international competition as she represented Canada at the Tiger Bowls and China Open in 2014.
