Just a month ago, Malaysian squash player Sivasangari Subramaniam achieved one of her greatest milestones by winning the 1st PSA World Tour Gold-Level title. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better than that, there’s more…

April 2024 Athlete of the Month

According to The World Games, it was shared that Sivasangari took the opportunity to share her inspiring story of how she was involved in a life-threatening car accident in 2022 in Kuala Lumpur.

She suffered injuries to her head, spine, and neck, and because of that, the doctors feared she might never walk again, even with surgery.

However, she managed to push through and returned to the court again just after 5 to 6 months, which shows her determination.

“I could only manage light activities because my neck movements were limited back then. The major breakthrough came after my summer training last year. Following the training, I felt more confident in the tournaments I participated in and felt like I was getting back to my usual self before the accident.”

The next Nicol David!

Subramaniam achieved a significant milestone by becoming the 1st Malaysian squash player since the iconic Nicol David, to clinch victory in a Gold-level (or higher) event on the PSA World Tour.

It’s been a hot minute since David’s epic win at the 2015 Hong Kong Open, making Subramaniam’s triumph even more remarkable.

“This win means the world to me. Nicol’s a total legend in squash and a big deal in Malaysia’s sports scene. Taking home this victory gives me a huge confidence boost, making me even more sure that I can pull off results like this,” said Sivasangari.

 

Congratulations to Sivasangari for getting named “Athlete of the Month”. She truly deserved it!
