News Team Henselite Kristina Krstic - Twice a World Champion
March 19, 2015

Kristina Krstic is the new World Under 25 Champion, winning not one but two World titles during last week's Junior World Championships at Broadbeach BC in Queensland. Up against Henselite teammate and fellow Aussie, Chloe Stewart, in the singles final, the WA ace was able to reverse last year's silver medal effort with a 21-16 win to take the title. It was the second consecutive time the pair had faced each other in the Wolrd Championship final.

In the mixed pairs Kristina was partnered by Ben Twist, and the pair saw off Team Henselite's Sheldon Bagrie-Howely and his partner Katelyn Inch from New Zealand to take out the thrilling final, 18-17.

"I'm so stoked to have won, it's taken me a couple of days to settle in and believe what's happened," Kristina said. "It feels amazing to be World Champion and to win not only one but two titles."

"To be over there with all those people that were there with me was incredible. I had so much support from my fellow Aussies. My family unfortunately couldn't be there due to work committements and things but the Australian Team were basically like my family for the week."

"Chloe and I are great friends and we were just both so excited to know that in the final there were two Aussies playing off for Gold and Silver. We were so happy for each other, It was the best possible result. I really wanted to win the final but either way I was really stoked."

"I was using my Henselite Fusions and as I've said before, I just always find that they are really true. This as especially the case on the beautiful greens up there. It was often really windy and it was really hard for bowlers whose bowls were being affected by the wind and didn't have a true turn. In all conditions the Fusions always take the same line. I didn't have to think 'it's really windy, I'll have to take more grass', they were always consistent."

"We have Australian Sides in April this year and I'll be skipping my first game for the state. I've got three newbies in my rink so that will be really nerve wracking for all of us! But ti's all really exciting, I can't wait."
