Veer Chotrani bags gold in Malaysia Junior Squash Open

Maharashtra's Veer Chotrani touched a new high as he beat Malaysia under-11 No.2 Havineshwaran Mugunthan 9-11, 11-6, 11-1, 12-10 to clinch the Milo All-Star Junior Malaysia Squash Open title, in Kuala Lumpur.

Having started with a 7-2 lead, a couple of irresponsible shots cost the under-11 top seed the first set. However, despite severe dehydration, he came back from the 0-1 deficit to finish the game.

Apart from being his first triumph outside India, the win was special for more than one reason for the boy. He is the first Indian win the
Malaysia Junior Open, an event where he had suffered a heartbreaking loss in the final last year. This time around, however, Chotrani left no stone unturned.

The presence of his father and former national champion Manish Chotrani, who was amongst the spectators, helped little Veer topple the top-ranked Malaysian contender. "He was there for Veer's every match since the quarterfinals and it really helped Veer get his focus in place," says mother Meera Chotrani.

"He spends three hours every day practicing squash, yoga and other fitness regimes," informs Meera.

And his commitment to the sport shows in the figures. In 2011 alone, the Mumbai lad bagged 13 titles, including a gold in junior nationals, silver in Malaysia and a bronze in Penang. With every junior title in the country under his belt, the class 6 student of Jamnabai Narsee school will now only participate in under-13 tournaments. "His coach has advised him to play in only under-13 category tournaments in India. This will help him better his game. For international events he will continue to play under-11," informs Meera.

With little Veer showing a level of discipline, focus and hard work that belies his age, expect bigger feats from this 10-year-old in the days to come.
