Uganda’s top squash player Michael Kawooya has said his recent one month training in Denmark has helped shape him well ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Scotland.

Kawooya who returned from Denmark last week told URN in an interview at Kampala Club on Thursday night that he is very prepared now to face top players from around the world. He said he had acquired new skills and approaches to games during the training in Denmark.

The player promised that he will help the other Ugandan players on the team to train better ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

Although Kawooya failed to go past the first round of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India, he is determined to perform much better when this year’s Commonwealth Games take centre stage in Glasgow, Scotland from July 23 until August 3.

Last year, the experienced player competed in several international tournaments.

He won the Rwanda International tournament before he finished 5th in the men’s elite draw during the White Nights Open in Russia.

Kawooya finished 8th out of 16 players at the Auto-Quip Prince Grand Prix tournament in South Africa. He went on to win the Nakuru Open International tournament. Later, the squash player went to Tanzania for the Uhuru Open where he lost in the third round of the main draw.

Uganda will send athletes in badminton, athletics, tennis, table tennis, rugby, shooting, boxing, squash, weightlifting and swimming.
