Datuk Nicol David

If the Olympics recognised squash in its games, we would have won gold medals many times over with our national treasure representing our country’s flag. Today, Nicol is regarded as one of the greatest women squash players of all time. She continuously broke world records and held the rank as the world’s number one squash player for nine years running. She once carried the Olympic torch for Malaysia and is the National Goodwill Ambassador of Malaysia for the United Nations Development Program.

Did you know: Nicol’s music interests are hip-hop and R&B; she credits it to giving her a sense of rhythm and flow which she applies during her time on the squash court.
