FILIPINO BOWLER BOWLS PERFECT 300 GAME WITH EBONITE’S INFINITE ONE, WINS MASTERS GOLD
Oct 12, 2006
HOPKINSVILLE, KY - Using Ebonite’s Infinite One ball, Biboy Rivera bowled a perfect 300 game and clinched the Masters Gold medal in Busan, South Korea joining the ranks of six other World Champions from the Phillipines. The 32-year-old became the 13th man in the history of the Masters to bowl a perfect game.
“Watching Rivera win this title was especially exciting for the Ebonite team because we knew the Infinite One could tackle any lane condition,” Kwang Chun Bae, director of Asian sales for Ebonite International, said. “The Infinite One has surely secured its place in the record books once again.”
This was the first time since 1979 that a Filipino had won and the third time a perfect score had been rolled in this competition, which drew 247 of the world’s elite players from 53 countries. Rivera beat German Achim Grabowski 3-2 in the best of five game competition.
The Infinite One, introduced in June, has already established itself as one of the top balls used by many professionals and amateurs worldwide. Known for its high performance and increased backend reaction, the ball has quickly surpassed its predecessors, The One and The Big One. Alabama resident and Ebonite amateur staff member, Ron Ware, recently used The Infinite One to bowl four 300-games at four different bowling centers, breaking a city record in Columbia, Tenn. at Ebonite’s Galaxy Lanes.
Based in Hopkinsville, KY, Ebonite International is a privately-owned company that currently services bowling centers, distributors and retail outlets both domestically and internationally.
