WSF President Ramachandran Meets IOC President In Lausanne

The new World Squash Federation President Mr N Ramachandran paid a courtesy call on International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge today (Thursday) at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne.

Outgoing WSF President Jahangir Khan introduced his successor, who was elected at last month's WSF AGM which was held during the Men's & Women's World Championships in Manchester, England.

Pictured at the presentation (from L to R) are:

During the visit, Ramachandran & Khan took the opportunity to present a commitment signed by top squash stars, led by world number ones Nicol David (Malaysia) and Amr Shabana (Egypt), pledging that the Olympics would be the ultimate prize for any squash player.

Squash is one of seven sports short-listed by the IOC for consideration for the 2016 Olympic Games. The meeting with President Rogge took place on the eve of the WSF's presentation to the Olympic Programme Commission in Lausanne.
