THE story titled World No.1 does Miles that was printed in The Coffs Coast Advocate on Tuesday, February 16, contained incorrect information.
The story stated that former Park Beach lawn bowler Matt Miles lost his opening round encounter of the Australian Open to world number one Safuan Said. However, it was in fact Matt McIntyre who lost to Safuan Said. Miles did not even participate in the event.
The information was garnered from Richard Goodbody who is the Communications and Marketing Co-ordinator for Bowls Australia.
Goodbody sent an email to The Coffs Coast Advocate admitting the error and offered his sincerest apologies to Matt Miles and his family as well as a retraction of the details contained in the Bowls Australia media release dated February 14.
