Jahangir Khan 555 : The Untold Story Behind Squash's Invincible Champion and Sport's Greatest Unbeaten Run Paperback / softback

Description

From 1981 to 1986, Pakistani squash great Jahangir Khan went undefeated to herald the longest unbeaten run in world sport until his streak came to an end at the 1986 World Championships.

In the 30th anniversary year to mark his unmatched run, Jahangir Khan 555: The Untold Story Behind Squash's Invincible Champion and Sport's Greatest Unbeaten Run dissects his early upbringing, how the then 17-year-old embarked on the five-year run following the tragic death of his brother, the pressure he ultimately faced to succeed from an expectant Pakistani nation and the extent his rivals went to even to win a game off this remarkable squash genius.

The book will also reveal the myth behind his magical mark of 555 unbeaten matches, and why the record books will have to be rewritten.
