Fantasy Friday: Squash for 2020 Olympics
This week's Fantasy Friday features the 2016 Olympic pledge video for the highly intense racquet sport, Squash. Squash was invented in London nearly two centuries ago but quickly spread throughout the world as an international sport. While former World No. 1, Jahangir Khan of Pakistan, is widely renowned as the greatest player in the history of the game, some of our modern-day champions hail from countries like France, Malaysia, Egypt, the birth-country England, and even America. Just shy of 5 years ago, the globally respected sport was featured on ESPN for collegiate performance.
It has long been a fantasy of mine and fans alike to have Squash make its debut appearance in the U.S Olympics. Unfortunately, that fantasy will not be fulfilled come 2016 but let's keep hope alive for 2020. Check out the "Squash 2020 Broadcast film," video-clip below and Visit Squash2020 for the latest news about the campaign.
THEY WERE BORN TO BE OLYMPIANS!
