HOPKINSVILLE, Kent.—Patricia Luoto, a member of the German national team, won the Sixth Annual Columbia 300 Vienna Open on October 5. By defeating Martin Paulsson, 224-201, Luoto became the first woman in the six-year history of the event to take the title.

Patricia is the wife of former World Champion, Mika Luoto, and is now in bowling’s record books as the tenth women to win a European Bowling Tour (EBT) event. Not only did she take home 6.000 Euro, she also earned 100 points for the win as the Columbia 300 Vienna Open is a Majors title.
Luoto and Paulsson eliminated Pascal Winterheimer and Lars Tangermann to arrive in the final match of this event that drew 278 players from 26 countries for a total prize fund equivalent to $90,000 US (65.630 Euro). The Columbia 300 Vienna Open is the 14th stop of the 2008 EBT.
