Squash: My sister is a tough opponent says Yemisi Olatunji

National Squash Champion, Yemisi Olatunji says her sister, Busayo Olatunji always put up a good fight whenever they meet on the court.

Yemisi Olatunji defeated Busayo Olatunji in the Zimbabwe International Open, Prime Atlantic PSA and Old Trafford PSA Close satellite squash events last year.

She said, “I am so proud of her (Busayo Olatunji) because she graduated from the junior category two years ago and now she has faced me in three different finals.

“Anytime I face her in the finals, she gives me a good fight which is good for me and I always feel emotional but playing her in finals is dreams come true”.

Olatujni told www.aclsports.com that she is excited adding the 2018 National Sports festival gold to her medal profile.

She said, “I was at the 2009 Kada Games but got knocked out at quarter finals. Three years late, I appeared at the Eko 2012, winning a gold medal in the team event and bronze in the single. I am excited that I won two gold medals in the single and team event last year.

“2018 was a year I will never forget in a hurry because I recorded many victories in my career”.

The Zimbabwe Open Champion said, “I am working seriously on myself to improve this year. After a victory, you work towards another so I am working on it.

She added, “I have always believed in myself and the people around me. I am using this medium to say a big thank you to Captain Adedayo Awobokun for believing in my dream and to those that have contributed positively to my success in 2018.
