Jahangir Khan is the greatest Professional Pakistani Sportsmen


Jahangir Khan is the greatest sportsman ever of any sport.  Well, his record of winning 555 consecutive matches to mention just one of many exceptional achievements remains unchallenged by any other athlete to this day.  I had the great fortune to watch him live at the peak of his game – an unforgettable experience.

Dominating international squash for the better part of a decade – during the 1980s into the 90s – it was initially, however, not at all obvious that Jahangir was going to become the greatest squash champion in history.

“I was told I would never become world champion. I was the youngest, smallest, feeblest and sickest of the family. Neither the doctor nor my father believed there was any chance for me to become a good squash player” – says Jahangir Khan in his book ‘Winning Squash’.

Having gone from such unpromising beginnings to become the greatest squash player of all time – Jahangir Khan is an inspiration for everyone – whatever their initial circumstances, to go on and achieve great things.

Indeed, to quote Jahangir again: “I believe my story can offer hope to millions of people all over the world who are poor, bereaved or sick.  At different times, I have been all three”.
