Jasmine Yeong Nathan's historical win was achieved at Hermosillo, Mexico on 15 November 2008 at the AMF Bowling World Cup finals.

The 20-year-old Jasmine Yeong Nathan defeated Ann-Maree Putney of Australia with scores of 263 to 222 in Game 1 and 298 to 215 in Game 2 at the AMF World Cup bowling finals.

Her score of 298, just 2 short of a perfect game in bowling, was the highest game recorded in a women's World Cup final.

Jasmine Yeong Nathan reached the play-offs for the finals after winning four out of eight matches with 9114 pinfalls during the AMF Bowling World Cup qualifying blocks from 9 November 2008 to 14 November 2008. This allowed her to go straight into the Bowling finals to meet her competitor for the AMF World Cup crown.

Well done, Jasmine Yeong Nathan! We are proud of you!
