Podium Finish As Third Place

Our women's squash team finished third in Women’s World Team Squash Championship in Palmerston North, New Zealand, yesterday. Our national team failed to book the place in final when Austalian defeated Malaysia in semi-final.

Malaysia earned third place after defeating New Zealand 2-1 in the play-off. Third place is good because the team already worked hard to quaify until semi-final. Maybe Australia to strong for our national team.

Low Wee Wern made a winning return after missing the semi-final tie on Friday and she turned the tables on the Kiwis by winning the deciding match to snatch third place for Malaysia.

Wee Wern makes winning return to help Malaysia down New Zealand

Wee Wern, who had been stricken with fever throughout the week and was rested from the semi-finals against Australia, came back from a set down to beat Joelle King 11-13, 11-2, 11-8, 11-1 in 54 minutes.

Shelley Kitchen, in her last competitive outing, had earlier handed the Kiwis the lead by beating Sharon Wee 11-5, 11-9, 11-6.

The 31-year-old Kitchen, thus, has won all five of her matches in the championship and retires on a high note after having a baby in February.

World No. 1 Nicol David was quick to put Malaysia back in contention when she took to the court for the second match.

So, congratulations to our national women's squash team. Try harder in the next championship. Squash is doing good so far, but how about our football? Maybe AFF Suzuki Cup could be another bench mark of our football.
