Squash superstar Nicol David is holding an auction of her favourite rackets and clothing to help the sport's bid for inclusion in the 2016 Olympics.
David, the 26-year-old world No1 from Malaysia, is leading the Squash For 2016 Day events being held in her home city of Penang on Saturday March 23rd.
Up for bidding will be many of the rackets she has used to win 25 major titles on the WISPA World Tour, plus many of the outfits she has worn on court during those finals.
Nicol has already begun the auction on ebay, and will also be holding a live auction at the Penang International Squash Centre on Squash For 2016 Day.
Nicol, who is an Olympic Ambassador for the World Squash Federation, said: "It would be a dream come true for me, or any squash player for that matter, to be able to represent their country in the Olympic Games.
"Through our event in Penang, we hope to help raise at least US$10,000 of the total funds required to help Squash in the 2016 Olympic bid."
The most successful Malaysian sports star of all-time, Nicol David was voted 'Malaysian Sportswoman of the Year' - for the sixth time – two months ago, and last year became the youngest person ever to receive a 'Datukship'.
