Egypt win sixth successive Women’s World Junior Team Championship
Egypt overcame Malaysia in the final of the WSF Women’s World Junior Team Championship to lift the title for the eighth time in their history.
This comes less than a week after Egypt’s Marwan Tarek and Rowan Elaraby secured the men’s and women’s individual trophies in Tauranga, New Zealand.
Egypt’s women defeated Hong Kong 2-0 to secure their final berth, while Malaysia had to overcome England in the semi-final.
World Junior Championship runner-up Hania El Hammamy beat Malaysia’s Sivasangari Subramaniam 3-1 (11-8, 11-8, 6-11, 11-9) in a 44-minute match.
Soon after, Egypt’s Rowan Elaraby, who was most recently crowned individual world champion, followed in her compatriot’s footsteps and defeated Andrea Lee 3-1 (11-4, 11-4, 9-11, 11-7) in 37 minutes to seal a 2-0 victory for Egypt.
This marked the Pharaohs’ six consecutive team title and their eighth final in a row.
