KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 — S. Sivasangari created history by becoming the youngest national champion at 19 beating the returning Low Wee Wern 9-11, 11-7, 11-9, 4-11, 11-7 while Ivan Yuen Chee Wern’s remarkable comeback continued as he successfully defended his national title beating national No 1, Nafiizwan Adnan 11-6, 12-14, 11-9, 11-9 at the conclusion of the National Squash Championships at Bukit Jalil Squash Centre today.

In the absence of Nicol David, Sangari, ranked 40 in the world, and Wee Wern back after a 20 month absence due to a recurring left knee injury ranked 253, had plenty to fight for as places for the Asian Games individual event was up for grabs.
