THE demons of the past were well dead and buried as national squash players Addeen Idrakie and Rachel Arnold both won to bring double joy for Malaysia.

Addeen had lost in the final of the same event in Singapore in 2015 while Rachel lost in the Kuala Lumpur 2017 final, but they put that in the past, living up to their top billings to bring home the golden prize at the Manila Polo Club yesterday.
