Top seed Nicol David celebrated her fifth successive Malaysian title at the Asian Squash Championships - but did so in contrasting style at the 14th staging of the biennial event in Kuwait.

I

The women's event saw Malaysia's Nicol David confirm her status as the undisputed Queen of Asian Squash when she beat long-time Hong Kong rival Rebecca Chiu 9-5, 9-2, 9-2 in 34 minutes in the final.


David, voted the 'Asian Sportswoman of the Year' in December, has now won the prestigious title for a remarkable six times in a row - since first claiming the crown in 1998 as a 14-year-old!


The triumph also marks the fourth Asian Championship final in which David has beaten Chiu - and brings the total of her regional singles titles (including the Asian Games and Asian Junior Championships) to ten!
