Squash


Gutted to see squash lose out on getting into the Olympics, and to breakdancing of all crazy things.

 

For anyone interested, the PSA World Championships are being played this week, with the Grand Central Station at Chicago hosting the main matches and final stages.

$1m of prizemoney (men and womens both $500k) and although there are many Egyptians playing in the last 16, there is a quite eclectic and global field still in it. Shame on the IOC for ignoring a proper sport and the only major racquet sport not included in the Olympics

 perhaps not, but squash is confirmed as missing out again. 

Plus it seems effectively a done deal

Congrats to James Willstrop, harrogate resident, on reaching the quarterfinals of the world championships in qatar this week. James pretty much retired and this is a sterling effort.

Finalists are Paul Coll of New Zealand ( first finalist since Ross Norman and Bruce Brownlee back when squash was the in sport) and he plays Tarek Momen, from Egypt, the current Kings of squash.
