9:54 am on 21 April 2011

After a slow start in the 2011 bowls World Cup, New Zealander Jo Edwards blazed through the international competition in the Warilla event in Australia, before overcoming world number three Alison Merrien in straight sets in the final to claim her third World Cup crown in a row.

The Warilla victory adds to the two National Open Championships the Cantabrian won early this year (pairs with Val Smith and singles), plus the recent Trans-Tasman victory.
