Pakistani female squash player rallies on

Top female squash player flees to Canada after being threatened for playing the game she loves.

    Pakistan’s top female squash player, Maria Toorpakai Wazir has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep playing the game she loves.

    The 22-year-old moved to Canada from a deeply conservative area of Pakistan where women are denied the right to play.

    Her family has received threats from militant opposition groups, but she pursues her goals elsewhere.
