Nicol David Triumphs in Cali, Colombia

Malaysian squash queen and world number one Nicol David clinched her third consecutive gold medal in the 2013 World Games in Cali, Colombia on Sunday. She outpaced Natalie Grinham of Holland 3-0 in the final. In fact, she did not have to work hard to subdue Natalie 11-6, 11-9, 11-8. 

David won the previous two gold medals in the quadriennial Games in Duisburg, Germany in 2005 and Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 2009. 

Nicol David is simply smashing! 

Allianz Toastmasters finally hosted their first meeting of the new 2013-2014 term and what a pleasant surprise it was! With the exception of the General Evaluator – which was my role for this meeting, not to mention I was also the Humor Master – the meeting depended entirely on own members. And Betty Phua and her team did a superb job because I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting! The speeches were sterling and the evaluations were superlative. 

There were two other Toastmasters from Sunway University who came as well and even though they were newbies, they gamely participated in the Table Topics session. And Sunway University Toastmaster, Kareshma Suresh was even voted Best Table Topics Speaker. 

I shall award this meeting a 9 over 10.
