Peruvian squash player Diego Elias has reached the 10th spot in the January ranking recently released by the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

The 21-year-old athlete climbed two positions compared to last December's chart.

As is known, Elias joined the PSA World Tour in 2013. A year later, he won the professional squash circuit at the Regatas Resistencia Open-Tour De Las Americas 2014.


Elias is currently the only Latin American player included in the world's top 10 ranking.

In 2017, the athlete not only grabbed a gold medal at the medley competition, but also won silver in the singles category —both at the 2017 Bolivarian Games.

It must be noted Elias is an outstanding athlete who belongs to "Top Peru Lima 2019." Likewise, he is a Sports Ambassador for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games.
