Swelim Captures Kish Island
Crown In Iran

Amr Swelim of
Egypt emerged triumphant from the final of the FAJR International after
beating Pakistan’s Yasir Butt in the climax of
the $12,000
PSA Tour squash
event in its third year in
Kish Island in
Iran.

The 23-year-old from Cairo dropped
the first game – but fought back to take the next three, surviving
a tie-break in the fourth to win 9-11, 11-8, 11-7, 11-10 (2-0)
in 43 minutes.

“I’m very happy to
win this title,” said Swelim after clinching his third
PSA Tour
title in a third continent.  “The first game was too close.  I
changed my game in the second and it worked.  Yasir is a talented
player.”

The new champion
thanked the organisers – and added: “I would like to come again
here.”
