That makes SIX
TITLES FOR EGYPT (And that's a record)
Hot favourites and top seeds Egypt, fielding a team comprised of
all the individual medalists, reclaimed the title that they lost
in the last event in Poland two years ago, but England certainly
gave them their sternest challenge of the tournament.
up was Marwan Tarek, who had lost the decider in Poland,
went on to become individual champion in 2017 and was runner-up
here last week, against Nick Wall, England's only
But the Englishman played well to stay with Tarek all through
the first, and the Eyptian's reaction wen he took the lead was
indicative if both how much he wanted the win, and how tough
that 17-minute game was.
Tarek was alway ahead, but never comfortably, through the next
two games, kneeling to kiss the floor as he gave his team the
the second match Sam Todd, only 15, threatened to give
Enland a lifeline as he matched Omar El Torkey all the
way, earning game balls at 10-9 and 11-10. Egypt's bronze
medalist held his nerve to take the lead, and never looked back
as he took the next two game comfortably give Egypt the title.
"We're so proud and happy," said the Egyptian coaching
team. "The boys have worked so hard for this and they've
got their reward, bringing Egypt another treble, just like the
girls last year. This generation has taken over from those
recent generations that have done the country so proud, and they
have te talent and the desire to dominate the senior ranks in
the coming years.
"Thanks to the organisers, the Indian squash federation and all
the workers and volunteers that made this a great event that
everyone will remember and can be proud of."
2 weeks I had the privilege to go to Chennai, India as the head
of Egypt’s Junior Squash Team for the World Junior Squash
I was lucky enough to be accompanied with 12 of Egypt’s best and
brightest young athletes who successfully had put Egypt at the
top as the No.1 Squash Nation in the World by winning 3 World
Titles for boys & girls under 19 years of age and brining back a
tough team title which we had lost 2 years ago to Pakistan.
