Wright and Kirby set to compete at the 2018 World Champion of Champions

NSW, AUS | October 23rd, 2018

British Columbia’s Mary Wright and Manitoba’s Jerome Kirby are off to New South Wales, Australia to compete in the 16th annual World Singles Champion of Champions, from October 29th to November 4th.  This world renowned competition features 53 contenders from 31 countries, held at the prestigious St. Johns Park Bowling Club. Kirby and Wright won the titles of Outdoor Singles Champions in 2017 (Winnipeg, MB), which earned them the right to represent Canada at the 2018 World Champion of Champions.

After a successful 2018 season, both Kirby and Wright will be eager to keep their momentum going in Australia. Kirby skipped his men’s fours team to a bronze medal at the 2018 Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships, while Wright secured gold at the 2018 Canadian Senior Triples Championships.
Although their momentum may be high, both Canadians will be in for some fierce competition at St. John’s Park Bowling Club. Kirby will need to get through New Zealand’s Shannon McIlroy, as well as Ireland’s Mark Wilson just to get out of his section. Wright will also need to go through New Zealand’s representative (Jo Edwards), but will also face the likes of Australia, Scotland, and England in her section.
