In 96 hours, the squash community around the world will be glued to the internet and social media outlets awaiting their fate. On September 8th, 2013 at 12:45pm (Buenos Aires Local Time) the International Olympic Committee, following the announcement of the 2020 Olympic Games Host City, will announce whether or not there will be a new sport joining the Olympic Games in 2020. The wrestling, baseball/softball, and squash communities have spent countless hours preparing their pitch to give their sport the best possible shot at joining (or re-joining) the Olympic Games.
For most athletes, the Olympic Games is the pinnacle of an athletic career. It’s the ultimate achievement, the universal symbol of success. For squash athletes around the world, it’s no different. While the fate of their sport and their Olympic dreams lie in the hands of others, many would be willing to sacrifice anything to be able to have a chance at an Olympic medal.
