Three years needed to regain lost glory: Qamar

ISLAMABAD  : Former World Champion and Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) vice-president Qamar Zaman Tuesday said it would take three years for Pakistan to eventually regain its lost glory in the game, sice players need time to prove their mettle.

Speaking about Pakistan’s junior players poor show in recently concluded WSF World Junior Squash Championships 2017 in New Zealand, Qamar said Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) and players are working
hard to regain country’s lost glory in the game.

“We need to give time to players and federation as things take time to improve,” he said and added that the Federation had finished the concept of overage players which was a big hurdle for the upcoming young talent.

“Now young players are coming up and they need time to prove their talent.”

He recalled that Pakistan’s Farhan Mehboob beat World No. 2 Karim Abdel Gawad in the Pakistan-Egypt squash series held here last month which was a great achievement of the Federation.

“It is a result of players and PSF’s efforts that Pakistan sealed the Squash Series against World-V by 3-2,” he pointed. Qamar said all these accomplishments are due to hard work of players and PSF.

Responding to a question, he said squash academies supervised by me, Jansher Khan and Jahangir Khan are working hard on players and hopefully in three to four years our squash players would be producing good results at international level.
