Life as a Squash Pro
Julian Illingworth is a Portland native who played professional squash for 8 years after Yale college - winning 9 National titles along the way and reaching a world ranking of #24. This talk will touch briefly on the sport of squash itself, and Julian's jouney through juniors to the professional ranks, and then expand on the life and experience as a professional athlete in a small sport, the challenges athletes face both during and after their careers.
