Gold Coast 2018: Malaysia secure comeback win to clinch lawn bowl gold
Malaysian lawn bowler Siti Zalina Ahmad rolled back the years as she and Emma Firyana Saroji clinched a gold medal in women's pairs at the 2018 Commonwealth Games with a stunning 15-14 comeback win against South Africa on Friday.

The 38-year-old, who came out on top in the women's singles at Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006, and Emma were up against Colleen Piketh, who won the event with Tracy-Lee Botha in Glasgow four years ago, and Nicolene Neal in the final.

Down 3-12 after 10 ends, the Malaysian pair rallied back into the game and took the win in the remaining eight ends.

Their triumph was Malaysia's first Commonwealth Games gold in lawn bowl since 2006 and fourth overall in history.
