Egypt Celebrate All Africa Hat-Trick

Egypt triumphed in the All Africa Junior Squash Championships, winning all three titles in the regional event in Gabarone, Botswana.

Both individual events concluded in all-Egyptian finals. Top seed Amr Arafa dismissed Saadeldin Abouaish, the No.3 seed, 11-9, 9-11, 11-6, 11-8 in the men's final to keep the trophy in Egyptian hands for the fourth year in a row.

It was a similar position in the other final where Mariam Metwally extended Egyptian ownership of the women's trophy. But the 18-year-old top seed, ranked 38 in the world, was taken the full distance by second seed Mayar Hany Mohamed before beating the world No.101 from Cairo 11-5, 11-8, 8-11, 9-11, 11-8.

South Africa provided the opposition in the team final. But for the fourth time in successive years, the Egyptian favourites brushed aside the second seeds 3/0 to ensure Egypt a trio of titles in the Botswana capital.
