Jakarta, Oct. 9 (CNA) Taiwanese athlete Lee Chia-chieh (???) finished first Tuesday in the final of the women's singles tenpin bowling competition at the 2018 Asian Para Games in Indonesia, snagging Taiwan's first gold medal at the regional sports event.
She finished with a total of 1,023 pins, besting Wong Mei-lan of Hong Kong (943 pins) and Malaysian Ruzila Mustafa (925 pins) to win gold.
Lee, who is paralyzed from the waist down, said she was extremely satisfied with the results and was glad that her tenacious training had ended on a high note.
"Sometimes I feel bad that I spend more time hugging the bowling ball than I do my husband," she said, thanking him and her family for being very supportive of her passion for bowling.
The Asian Para Games, a multi-sport event regulated by the Asian Paralympic Committee, is held every four years for athletes with physical disabilities.
This year's event, which kicked off in Jakarta on Oct. 6, is being held until Saturday.
As of press time, Taiwan had garnered 11 medals -- one gold, six silver and four bronze.
