***Good question! If it was made an olympic sport,
would there be any women to represent Pakistan?
If so, how would they be told to dress? Hijab,
long skirt, sweats....?

They can dress the way they do when they play in Pakistan.
Anyway......I have been wondering the samething for a long time
now.....why isn't squash an olympic sport??!?!?!?!?!!  There are
certainly more countries who play squash than handball....and handball
is an olympics sport!  Tennis has also been included since this last
olympics...and I hope squash is next.  IT BETTER BE!  The only reason
which I can think of is that the olympic commitee is somewhat afraid
of the outcome.  They know that Pakistan is definitely going to win
the gold medal.....and they just can't swallow that.

Any comments?

Toudong, of course:)  A few years ago Sports Illustrated did a story
on women's squash on the East Coast and mentioned a Pakistani ***ager
Shazia Khan (any surprise about the last name? :) dominating the circuit.

Never heard about her since.  Dont care what she wore.
