Nicol Ann David, the World's No 1 squash women player will be awarded a Datukship by the Yang DiPertua Negeri Pulau Pinang tomorrow , July 12, 2008.
I congratulate her for being rewarded the prestigious state award, which she so rightly deserve. Surely, her rise to the world number one spot in squash is no fluke. It is through sweat and tears, that finally paid off.
I am sure the sporting fraternity, will be equally proud of Nicol, and her achievements should serve as an example for others to emulate.
