Sivasangari Stuns In London

History was made in the past day or so, an achievement that marks a significant milestone not only for national athlete Sivasangari Subramaniam but also for Malaysian squash. In the inaugural London Classic Squash event, defying all expectations, Sivasangari made history by clinching the title, defeating world number two Hania El Hammamy of Egypt in the final match. Ranked 13th globally at the time, she had to overcome formidable opponents including the world number one and number four on her path to victory.

It's been nearly a decade since a Malaysian claimed the title at a gold-level PSA tournament, last achieved by Datuk Nicol David in 2015. To delve deeper into this remarkable feat, we are joined on the program by former professional squash player and vice-president of SRAM, Sharon Wee.
