0

KARACHI: Legendary Pakistan squash player Jahangir Khan vowed on Thursday to keep fighting for a place for his sport in the Olympics despite the failed bid to join the 2020 Tokyo Games. The International Olympic Committee voted on Sunday to put wrestling back on the roster. Squash trailed in third place, winning 22 votes out of 95 cast, behind 49 for wrestling and 24 for baseball/softball. Khan, who set a record of 10 British open titles in 1991, said he would not be deterred from fighting hard for squash.
