Nicol David of Malaysia clinched gold in the women's squash final at the Asian Games.  

World champion Nicol David won her second gold medal at the Asian Games, leading Malaysia to a 2-0 win over Hong Kong in the team squash event on Thursday.

David beat Wing Chi in straight games – 11-8, 11-7, 11-6 - to add another gold to her singles title last week.

It was the ninth gold medal for Malaysia - four of them in squash - in the games, which end on Saturday.

“Everybody just kept working all the way,” David said.

Chi said she played better than in her singles final loss to David, but still came up short.

“Nicol was stronger,” she said. “She obviously had thought out her strategy before the match. In the third, I could not catch up with her because of fatigue.
