Anahat Singh, an epitome of rising talent in the world of squash, has etched her name in golden letters by securing the gold medal in the U-17 category of the prestigious Asian Junior Squash Individual Championships. This remarkable feat serves as yet another gleaming jewel in her crown of accomplishments. The championship, spanning from August 16 to 20, served as a platform for Anahat to showcase her exceptional skills and unwavering determination, ultimately emerging triumphant on the squash court.
The 15-year-old prodigy hailing from India displayed her remarkable prowess by delivering a resounding 3-1 victory over Hong Kong’s Ena Kwong in the gripping finals. Her journey to the top was marked by her incredible performances in the quarterfinals and semifinals, where she overcame the challenges posed by Malaysian players Doyce Lee and Whitney Isabelle Wilson, respectively.
Notably, this victory is not the first for Anahat in the realm of the Asian Junior Squash Individual Championships. Last year, she made an indelible mark in the competition held in Thailand, clinching her inaugural gold medal in this esteemed event.
Her accomplishments are a testament to her consistent excellence. In January 2019, Anahat Singh seized the Girls U-11 championship at the British Junior Open Squash. The following July, she triumphed again in the Girls U-13 category at the Dutch Junior Open Squash.
Continuing her trajectory of success, her exceptional performance propelled her to the quarterfinals of the Indian Open held in Noida in 2021, thereby securing her place in the 2021-22 PSA World Tour. Notably, Anahat’s achievements extend beyond regional boundaries, as she proudly represented India on the grand stage of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. This participation marked a significant milestone, as she emerged as the youngest Indian participant in the competition at the tender age of 14.
The President of the Asian Squash Federation, Mr. David Mui, is among the many who laud Anahat’s remarkable achievements, serving as a testament to her dedication, passion, and exceptional talent within the world of squash.
