Egypt, South Africa Dominate Squash Event

The African Under-19 Squash Championships ended in Gaborone last week with Egypt and South Africa as the runaway top dogs.

In Gaborone, the two Egyptian boys confirmed their reputation as the top players in world junior tennis. They led an Egyptian domination of the tournament as all the country's six boys finished in the top 10. Sahourbashy and Wageh are tipped to be in the top 10 in the professional category as early as next year.

Besides sweeping the honours in the boys singles, the Egyptians completed their top-notch performance with another gold in the boys' team event, beating  South Africa and Zimbabwe to second and third place.
