Georgina Kennedy completed a remarkable rise when she became the first Englishwoman to win a Commonwealth squash singles title.
The 26-year-old had already rocketed up the world rankings, going from 185th in the world to a top ten player in just nine months after finishing her degree at Harvard University.
At Birmingham 2022, Kennedy came through a battle with Team England teammate Sarah-Jane Perry to make the gold medal final where she beat Canada's Hollie Naughton to claim gold.
Kennedy hails from the same suburb of Bromley as tennis star Emma Raducanu and has now matched the meteoric rise of her fellow racquet sports prodigy. The two even play at the same club and share a physio.
Kennedy’s athletic ability isn’t confined to squash. She also ran for the Blackheath and Bromley Harriers club that reared Dina Asher-Smith as well as playing tennis herself when she was younger.
She made her World Tour debut in 2021 having taken four years out to major in psychology at Harvard. On her return to the sport, she won seven of her first nine tournaments.
