Sara Xuereb wins the silver medal, improving on her previous bronze, at the EYC currently being held in Vienna. 

After winning her squad with a brilliant 208 average, she went on to place 3rd overall amongst 65 players. In the semi final she disposed of  German bowler Nele Niehusenand with ease, and went on to face the overall leader, Victoria Kashirskaya from Russia, in a pulsating neck and neck game, which was finally decided in the last frame where Xuereb unfortunately left a split that allowed the Russian bowler to win.
