Mr. Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee joined Mr. David Mui MH JP, the ASF’s President and the ASF Officers to watch the Men’s Squash Team Final at the Asian Games in Jakarta.
“We are honoured to have Mr. Bach’s presence at the Men’s Team Final to show his support of our squash event at the Asian Games. He was impressed of the professionalism of the officials, the performance of our athletes as well as the passion of the crowd. I believe his visit to the Asian Games squash event is definitely a good propaganda for the 2024 Olympic bid,” said Mr. Mui.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate PB Persatuan Squash Indonesia for hosting the prosperous squash event of the 2018 Asian Games. My sincere appreciation would also extend to all who have involved in making the event successful and memorable, included the participating member nations, their athletes and coaches, the organising team, the officials and the helpers. You have showcased the unity, enthusiasm and impeccable teamwork of the Asian squash community.”
To show appreciation to the support of the IOC President, Mr. David Mui presented Mr. Thomas Bach a very thoughtful souvenir which is a squash-court 3D model with “Our Olympic Dream” on it.
