CAMILLERI –THIRD CAREER ‘PERFECT’ GAME

Rankin Luke Camilleri is a team okmalta.com stalwart, and one of Malta’s top tenpin bowlers.

The inspiring story of his Rankin’s rise to bowling success began when he was 11 years old, training with the SkolaSport tenpin bowling squad.

From there the promising youngster was selected for the Malta Tenpin Bowling Association’s youth and junior squads. As Camilleri became ‘of age’, he progressed to the adult squad, and has now formed part of the MTBA Elite Squad for many years.

At 28 years old, Camilleri may be considered to be at the peak of his game, however there are still many, many years of bowling success in store for him. His latest milestone achievement came in the form of a 300 game this week, during his team, okmalta.com’s Division I match against Turu’s Knights (8 – 0 to okmalta.com).

The big came in the third and final game of the series, leading up to which Camilleri had helped his team bag the previous two games win individual efforts of 191 and 248.

Then came that much coveted succession of 12 strikes, always a thrill to watch, but certainly nerve wracking for the player involved. As that 12th and final strike ball ploughed through the pins, clearing the pin-deck to confirm that magical 300 total, Rankin was inundated with hi-fives and congratulatory hugs from his team mates and opponents alike.

This was in fact Rankin Camilleri’s third career 300, the previous two having both come in the SuperBowl’s Handicap Doubles league, during the 2008 and 2013 seasons.

Camilleri has a host of other bowling accolades to be proud of, including representing Malta several times in international events going back as far as his youth team days, and more recently when he formed part of Team Malta for the 2013 Mediterranean Championships held in Slovenia in 2013, when he picked up a bronze medal in the 4-Man Team Event.

He also placed third in the 2012 Malta Open Champions, where he realised the honour of defeating bowling legend, Christian Vandamme (BEL) in the final stages.
