My Biggest Challenge In 2019 Is My Sister – Female Squash Player, Olatunji

Yemisi Olatunji, Nigeria’s number one female squash player, said on Friday that her sister, Busayo, was undermining her desire of retaining the prime position in 2019.

Olatunji, who dropped this insight in a meeting with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, noticed that being number one persistently kept her on her toes.

“As number one player, the main position you can get to is second position; along these lines, it’s continually in my mind.

“That pushes me to work more earnestly; it has worked for me, I’m not going to yield at any point in the near future.

“If you paid close attention to last year, my sister Busayo was always close, coming first runner up,” said Olatunji.

She described her sister as a hard worker and currently one of the biggest contenders for the number one position.

“In 2018, Busayo played against me in some finals and believe me, when I say it was tough.

“She knows me, she sees me train; so, at the moment, she is a challenge,’’ the number one player said.

The Professional Squash Association (PSA) ranked player said she would expect more competitions to sharpen her competitive skills.

“My fear is that we won’t have enough tournaments both home and abroad.

“You know it has been hard getting new sponsors; we players have only been thriving due to goodwill from few enthusiasts of the sport.

“We just need more competitions and more sponsors, to further develop squash in the country,” Olatunji said.
