Victorians among the medals

by Team BV

Victorian trio Aaron Wilson, Carla Krizanic and Barrie Lester will play off for 2016 World Championship gold.
The three Australian representatives have made it through to the finals of their respective disciplines at World Bowls 2016 in Christchurch, New Zealand, and are guaranteed at least a silver medal.
Wilson and men’s pairs partner Brett Wilkie beat reigning world champions Paul Foster and Alex Marshall of Scotland 17-11 to make the final – following up on their earlier win over the Scottish duo in the sectionals. They’ve now booked a gold medal showdown with Ireland.
Krizanic is part of the Australian women’s fours team which will take on England after a 27-9 semi-final thumping of New Zealand – the Aussies’ seventh successive win after a wobbly start to the tournament.
Lester, Mark Casey and Aron Sherriff are into the men’s triples final after beating Victorian-based New Zealander Ali Forsyth (Clayton) and his Kiwi team in the semis.
Forsyth finished with a bronze medal, as did the other Victorian-based player at World Bowls 2016 – Canada’s Kelly McKerihen in the women’s singles.
The 2016 Victorian Open women’s singles champion lost a nail-biter by a single shot to Australia’s reigning world champion Karen Murphy in the semi-final.
