Khan takes 3rd Iran title to celebrate hat-trick!

Pakistan teenager Danish Atlas Khan (pic) celebrated his 3rd successive PSA World Tour title triumph in Iran in a month when he won the Norooz Squash International in Tehran. 3rd seed Khan made his breakthrough in the semi-finals where he beat top-seeded Egyptian Mazen Gamal, the champion in 2009. The 17-year-old from Peshawar then faced the title-holder Bader Al Hussaini in the final after the 4th seed from Kuwait had overcome 2nd seed Waqar Mehboob, from Pakistan, in the other semi-final. “I really want to thank Allah for winning 3 tournaments here – also thanks to my father and my coach Atlas Khan, and my family, who really support me,” said the jubilant champion after his victory.
