Paeng Nepomuceno is back in competitive form as he prepares for an unbelievable fifth Bowling World Cup title. The 2009 Bowling World Cup will be held at the Melaka International Bowling Center in Melaka, Malaysia from November 13 to 20.
One of sports' true legends, Paeng is soft-spoken and unassuming but packs an awesome left hand that has earned for him four (4) Bowling World Cup Championships having won the event in 1976, 1980, 1992 and 1996.
Paeng will represent the Philippines at Melaka together with women's champion Liza Del Rosario. Paeng beat Paulo Valdez and Bensir Layoso in the men's stepladder finals while Del Rosario edged Krizziah Tabora.
