Exciting news for all QNET sport fans! QNET has sponsored the bid to include squash in the 2020 Olympics, which took place at the Finals of the Hong Kong Squash Open last Sunday where members of the Olympic Committee (OOC) is making the big decision!
This Sunday, at the Hong Kong Squash Open, every spectator will be given a ‘Back The 2020 Squash Olympics Bid’ t-shirt with the QNET logo on.
Nicole David, World No. 1 Women’s squash player and Malaysia’s best known export, was in Hong Kong last weekend to play in the Hong Kong Squash Open (25/11 to 2/12) and to retain her title.
She has been the world number one for over six years now and in unrelenting form. 2012 has probably been the highlight of her career and she won all the first four tournaments she entered including the first ever World Series Finals in January, alongside the PSA event at Queen’s Club, London.
Small and slight, the girl nicknamed the Duracell Bunny is unbelievably fast on court and a great retriever with a fully rounded attacking force.
She is one of the top supporters and icons of the World Squash Federation’s bid for squash to be included in the 2020 Olympics. “I’d gladly give up my 6 world titles for one Olympic Gold”, she said. WSF has selected this year’s Hong Kong’s Squash Open to be the showcase event for the OOC to judge whether it’s good enough to be included in the 2020 Olympics.
