Egyptian women have once again proven they dominate the world in squash, having won the world championship for the second consecutive time.

On Monday, the team took home the Women's World Team Championship title after beating England 2-0 in Dalian, China.

This marked the team's fourth world championship final and its third title.

The reigning top player in the world, Egyptian national Nour El Sherbini, sat out the final due to an injury, but her teammates still managed to win gold.

The final saw Egypt's Nouran Gohar, who is ranked sixth best player in the world, win over England's Alison Waters in 55 minutes.

World Champion Raneem El Welily, who is ranked second-best globally, secured the championship title with a victory against Laura Massaro in 36 minutes.

"I am very proud of the girls especially after Nour El Sherbini messed up her Achilles tendon yesterday, so I am very happy that they stuck together and kept it together," said their coach Amr Shabana, a four-time World Champion, according to PSA World Tour.

"To be fair, both Raneem and Gohar played really well for Egypt - both played superb squash," England's coach, David Campion, admitted.

"We can't really be too disappointed with the outcome when you see the level of squash they play at today," Campion added.

The match marked the fourth time Egypt faced England in the finals, with the latter only beating the former in a final match once back in 2006.

In May 2016, Egypt became the first country in 20 years to hold the top three spots on the PSA Women's World Rankings

Egyptian women have since maintained their top spots in the world rankings, with four female Egyptian nationals currently among the world's top 10.

Egyptian men have also made a name for themselves in the squash world, with the four top players in the world being Egyptian nationals.

Egyptians have been practicing squash since the 19th-century after the sport was invented in Britain and spread throughout the empire.

"The British built clubs for their colonial officers in Cairo and Alexandria, but Egyptian ball boys and service staff had access to the squash courts in off-hours," according to The Atlantic.

Additionally, the BBC reports that in the 1990s, former President Hosni Mubarak, an avid squash player himself, promoted the sport by increasing government funding.
