Egypt’s Women Make Squash History Taking Top Three Spots in World Ranking

Egyptian squash players continue to make history, with Egypt becoming the first country in 20 years to hold the top three spots on the PSA Women’s World Rankings, reported the PSA’s website.

The December women’s world rankings currently places Egypt’s Raneem El Welily, Nour El Sherbini, and Nouran Gohar in the top three spots. Also in the top ten is Omneya Abdel Kawy, who is currently number eight in the rankings.

According to the PSA World Tour, the latest Egyptian achievement emulates that of Australia in the 1990s when Michelle Marin, Sarah Fitzgerald, and Liz Irving took the top three places in the July 1996 rankings.

The latest achievement for Egypt comes as Egypt won its third Women’s World Team Championship title on Sunday after beating England 2-1 in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.

England’s Laura Massaro managed to defeat Egypt’s Nour El Sherbini in the first round. However, the second and third rounds saw Nouran Gohar and Raneel El Welily defeat Alison Waters and Sarah-Jane Perry.
