Pakistan Wins British Junior Open for the First Time Since 2012

-

Pakistan’s Muhammad Humza Khan has won the British Junior Open’s Under 15 Boys category, making his country proud in Birmingham earlier today.

Humza swept the final 3-0 against England’s Yusuf Sheikh with a score of 11-4, 11-3, and 11-7, ending a relatively long drought of 8 years considering Pakistan won the British Junior Open back in 2012.

British Open is a prestigious event in the world of Squash and its junior title took place from 2-6 January. In the junior championship, events for both girls and boys take place every year under different categories such as Under 19, 17, 15, 13 and 11.

In the semi-final, Humza Khan defeated Egypt’s Yassin Shohdy 3-0 as the scoreline read 11-5, 11-8, and 11-7. In the second semi-final, Yusuf Sheikh downed Pakistan’s Muhammad Ammad with a final score of 11-9, 11-6, and 11-7.
