istatsint181128Dennis Joell of Bermuda is in Hong Kong competing at the World Bowling Men's Championships against the best bowlers in the world.

Joell chose to buy a new bowling ball to play with at the event but instead of taking his other $200 bowling ball home with him, the ball was regifted to the Afganistan team who arrived at event with no equipment and were using "house balls" from the public center next to the competition venue.
"It's moments like these when we realize the power of sport and the friendship it brings." said Technical Director Marios Nicolaides who aided the switch in equipment.

Joell speaking to wwww.islandstats.com said, “After deciding to purchase another ball I took the opportunity to donate the ball to World Bowling to give to someone in need. I wasn't aware who they would give it to, but I’m glad to help jumpstart someone in the sport of bowling, a sport that has given me much joy in a short period of time.”

A number of boxers will be in the ring this evening [Nov 24], as the ‘Redemption Fight Night’ event takes place at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, with the headline fight to see professional Bermudian boxer Nikki Bascome take on David Martinez of Mexico.

istatsint181125Delegates including Bermuda Olympic Association President Judy Simons and Secretary General Stanley Douglas are beginning to arrive here for an Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly which is set to be overshadowed by allegations of forgery against current President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah.
Sheikh Ahmad is due to be re-elected as the head of the umbrella organization during the gathering of the 206 National Olympic Committees in Tokyo Wednesday November 28th and Thursday 29th.

It comes despite the emergence of fresh allegations of wrongdoing against the key Olympic powerbroker, who denies the charges, on the eve of the meeting.
Sheikh Ahmad has stepped aside as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and as head of the Olympic Solidarity Commission pending the outcome of an Ethics Commission hearing into the accusations.

Swiss newspaper Le Temps claimed prosecutor Stéphane Grodecki has accused Sheikh Ahmad and other defendants of creating fake videos as part of a plot against two Kuwaiti Government officials.
