MOVEMENT | SPORT • Nicol David is a Malaysian from a small island called Penang. She held the position of World No. 1 Squash Champion for 108 consecutive months. On 2nd February 2021, with 318,943 votes, she was announced as The World Games Greatest Athlete of All Time. The retired professional squash player, Datuk Nicol Ann David DB PJN DSPN KMN AMN (born on August 26, 1983) was officially ranked the number one female player in the world in January 1996 — a status that was never before held by an Asian woman. Nicol speaks to us from her second base in Colombia and opens up about mental health and how sports helped prepare her to be mentally strong during the 2020 pandemic. She spoke about her hometown Penang, her dad who was a former athlete himself, her mom's chilli crab curry, her siblings and being hyper active as a child, and her foundation for young women. We also spoke about Malaysians and their passion for food!  >p> Read the article: "Asia’s squash darling Nicol David named The World Games Greatest Athlete of All Time": https://www.asiafitnesstoday.com/?p=9003.
