Both gold medal matches featured one bowler each from the U.S. and Sweden, the two dominating countries of the championships, which offered gold medals in five diciplines to bowlers age 50 and over.
Romeo used a Storm IQ™ Tour and Roto Grip Disturbed™. Miller used Storm and Roto Grip equipment as well.

In the men's final, Miller defeated Jan Nordberg, 247-198, to earn his second gold medal after winning the Doubles with Ron Mohr.
Mohr used an IQ Tour.
The two Americans squared off in the semifinals, and Miller, seeded fourth, ousted the No. 1 seed who has out averaged his nearest competitor by more than 11 pins, 203-181. The other semifinal was an all-Swedish affair with Nordberg defeating Christer Pettersson, 201-173.
Nordberg received the silver medal while Mohr and Pettersson shared the bronze medal.
In the women's semifinals, Romeo flew past No. 4 Sharon Tataryn of Canada, 253-202, and Olsson sidelined Singles champion Lucy Sandelin (below right), United States, 222-179.
