Golan Pulls Out of 2016 Men’s World Championship


Spanish World No.14 Borja Golan has withdrawn from next week’s Wadi Degla PSA Men’s World Championship in Cairo after suffering a herniated disc.

Golan, a former World No.5, has won 31 PSA World Tour titles over a 15-year career and has emerged as his country’s greatest ever player after recovering from a serious knee injury sustained in 2009.

The 33-year-old’s withdrawal means that Egypt’s Zahed Mohamed will now take on Hong Kong’s Max Lee in round one, while England’s Ben Coleman moves into the main draw, with the World No.51 set to face a qualifier.
