24-year-old Malaysian squash superstar Sivasangari Subramaniam has just been ranked No. 15 in the Women’s PSA World Squash Rankings. She had recently, in the month of July last year, been holding the world rank of No. 16, but with her consistent climb to success and developing her skills, she had made herself another step closer to being in the world top ten rank. Her recent championship at the Hong Kong Football Club Open last month is an exemplary triumph of how this young athlete is growning and gaining more wins as she progresses in her career.
Some of this young athletes most notable achievements have been winning two gold medals at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and a bronze at the 2022 World Squash Doubles Championships that took place in Glasgow. Born in Sungai Petani, Kedah, to Valli Nagappan and Subramaniam Kaniappan, this young, fiery spirit has been playing squash since the tender age of eight. Her relentless and dedicated involvement in the sport has propelled her beyond the national stage and boosted her into the international arena, where she has been steadily progressing with grace.
Due to an injury sustained in an accident in 2022, she had to unfortunately withdraw from the 2022 Commonwealth Games, but since her recovery, she has been completely devoted to advancing herself in international squash tournaments. Sivasangari is also currently pursuing her BSc in Mass Communications and Media Studies at Cornell University.
