This will be his second international tournament after competing in the World Cup in China in 2016. Govender has been bowling since 1989.
He has had two perfect games in his career, the last one in April this year.
A perfect game is when one has 12 consecutive strikes, (where the bowling ball knocks down all the pins in one go) in a game.
Govender has had good showings at local tournaments in 2018.

He represented his province twice this year in the inter-provincials. In the last inter-provincial tournament, he walked away with one gold, two silver and one bronze medal.
Govender is hoping to start coaching in his free time, and get youngsters involved in the sport.
He currently assists his fellow bowlers where he can, be it during league or when they join him during his practice sessions.
