  • Page Views 3084
  • FOUR-TIME World Cup champion Rafael ‘Paeng’ Nepomuceno is the new coach of the Philippine bowling team.

    Nepomuceno was appointed to the post last month, a job he felt he deserved.

    He said he has long wanted to help and bring glory back to bowling and inspire the athletes.

    Now 59, Nepomuceno once held the crown in the  World Cup in 1976, 1980, 1992, and 1996.

    His feat put him in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Paeng also has  awards from five Philippine presidents, and has a United States Bowling Congress gold level coaching certification.

    Joining him in the coaching staff are former world champion Biboy Rivera, Jojo Canare, Rey Reyes, and Johnson Cheng.

    Nepomuceno said he will also continue to train and certify coaches in the United States.

    Nepomuceno’s focus is on improving the national bowlers’ mental and scientific approach to the game.

    The sport, according to Nepomuceno  has changed  in the past few years, and, he believes that  talent alone will not be enough. (P. Atencio, M.S)
