ISF Athlete Selected to WSF World Junior Championships
August 11 – 21, 2022
Our very own Miriam Cheng Min-Chen (graduate and valedictorian, Class of 2022) was among eight players selected to represent Hong Kong at the 2022 World Junior Squash Championships held on August 11-21 in Nancy, France. This World Squash Federation (WSF) event had been canceled over the past three years due to pandemic disruptions.
Over 200 young athletes from 37 countries around the world gathered to compete for prestigious men’s and women’s world junior titles, as well as men’s team championship. Individual matches took place August 11-16 and were immediately followed by team events from August 17-21.
Miriam faced players from Canada and Poland in her opening matches. The high-pressure environment offered an invaluable opportunity for her to gain solid international experience. After years in training, this was her first squash competition with a live broadcast, bringing ISF athletics to yet another global level.
