PESHAWAR Eight times world champion and six times British Open winner squash legend Jansher Khan said Monday that lack of fitness among youngsters was the biggest problem the Pakistan Squash Federating was facing. Jansher Khan said this while addressing in a Mulaqat program of the newly formed Khyber Sports Journalist Association here at Press Club. President Khyber Sports Journalist Association Imran Yousafzai and Secretary Ihtisham Bashir and a large gathering of journalist were also present. When asked if he could name a player capable of becoming world champion, Jansher said that he got the honor at the age of 17 and that was the best age to achieve such glory. I had cited the names of Aamir Altas and Farhan once but they have failed because of lack of commitment, Jansher added. He said the players were reluctant to undergo physical training and there practice did not go beyond an hour or two which is not sufficient for an individual to become world championship. The squash legend said that there was no dearth of talent in Pakistan but due to lack of professionalism, commitment and poor physical fitness no player had reached that prime. Jansher said that the players lacked hunger for victory. They do not imagine what a world champion is and what sort of efforts one should need to achieve that glory, said Jansher. He came from a family of outstanding squash players. His brother Mohibullah Khan was one of the worlds leading professional squash players in the 1970s. Another older brother, Atlas Khan, was a highly-rated amateur competitor. Jansher won the World Junior Squash Championship title in 1986. He also turned professional that year. I dont know why the players are reluctant to play in the senior category and happy to keep themselves in juniors, Jansher added. There are 23 plus age players playing in the junior category, he said. He said he was satisfied with the facilities the Pakistan Squash Federation was providing to players. He said some decades back when Pakistan had legends like Jahangir Khan, Qamar Zaman, Mohibullah, Gogi Alauddin, there were no facilities but now there are facilities but the players do not work hard. Jansher said that in present circumstances the players do not need coach rather a good trainer can produce better results. He thanked the President PSF for accepting his suggestions.
