Nicol David wins Commonwealth Games Gold!

At her fourth attempt, after competing in Squash’s maiden appearance in the Commonwealth Games in her home country in 1998 when just 15, Malaysia’s world number one Nicol David finally claimed gold when she beat England’s Jenny Duncalf, the world No2, in a straight games victory in the final in Delhi. David needed 40 minutes to beat Duncalf 11-3, 11-5, 11-7. Afterwards Nicol David did a ‘lap of honour’ around the spectacular ASB all-glass showcourt with the Malaysian flag draped around her shoulders. “I’m so excited right now – it’s just so wonderful,” said the jubilant David.
