KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3 (Bernama) -- Former world number five women's squash player, Low Wee Wern can only feature in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia from April 4-15, if she gets the green light from the National Sports Institute (NSI).
Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia (SRAM) president Huang Ying How said the priority for Wee Wern, who is expected to return from injury next month, is to defend her women's team event gold and women's singles silver medal at the Asian Games in Palembang and Jakarta from Aug 18 to Sept 2.
"She is still recovering and doing well in rehab. We do not have KPI (Key Performance Indicator) for her in Commonwealth Games because our target is the Asian Games. SRAM will only put her name in if NSI clears her to play.
"We want her to recover fully before playing in major tournaments. We do not want to take the risk by fielding her in the Commonwealth Games because if she has another ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury, it would kill her career," he told media after the Olympic Council of Malaysia's (OCM) media appreciation lunch at Royal Selangor Club here, today.
Former national number two Wee Wern,27, who had her first ACL injury in April 2015, is expected to make her second comeback after more than a year and join national squash icon, Datuk Nicol David to strengthen the national women's team.....
