Squash sensation Chris Binnie overpowered Guyana's Sunil Seth 8-11, 11-7, 11-4, 8-11, 11-8 in a gruelling five-setter on Tuesday night to make history by becoming the only man to win the Caribbean Area Squash Association's (CASA) Senior Championship four times.
Playing in his fifth final in five years, Binnie completed another defence of his regional crown, taking the prestigious title for the third consecutive year.
"It's an unbelievable feeling to now have four titles, which is the record. This is what you dream about growing up, you want to be the best in your sport," Binnie said after his history-making victory.
"It was a very difficult match because it was close all the way to the end.
The victory is another entry on the 24-year-old's impressive resumé, as Binnie also won the All Jamaica men's title for the fourth time in July. He remains the only Jamaican to ever win a professional title and is currently ranked 139 by the Professional Squash Association.
In addition, he had a good run at World Games earlier in August, where he created a major upset by beating world number 66 Harinder Pal Sandhu of India to reach the round of the 16.
"I plan to get more regional titles, but I'm also looking to make the next step on the international level because I want to become the best in the world," Binnie said.
Currently under way in Georgetown, Guyana, the 2013 CASA Senior Championships will continue until Saturday. The team competition began yesterday with the Jamaican men taking on Barbados.
