14-year-old Anahat defeated 6-year-old player in squash
Watch as 14-year-old Indian squash player Anahat Singh beat Jada Ross of St Vincent and the Grenadines in her first ever match at the Commonwealth Games.
Maybe steer clear if you’re from the southern Caribbean nation mind.
Singh faces Welsh former world number 12 Emily Whitlock later on Saturday (19:15 BST).
Anahat Singh, a 14-year-old from Delhi, has done wonders in the world of sports. Usually, children of this age are involved in school bags and video games. But, Anahat has made the journey to the Commonwealth Games at this young age.
He is the youngest player in these games going on in Birmingham. Anahat has won her round of 64 match in squash on Friday. This is the first win of his career in the senior category. In the opening match, he defeated St. Vincent’s Zaida Ross, 6 years older than him, 11-5 11-2 11-0.
I said after the win – I had nothing to lose.
After the win, Anahat said, “In reality, it is very exciting and fun. This is my first senior tournament, so I didn’t know what to expect, but as the match progressed, the confidence in me grew. I had nothing to lose. There are a lot of people in my family here and they were all cheering me out very loudly. ‘
