Krish Thakur of Tracy won the national title in the 10-and-under age group at the USA Racquetball 2014 Wilson Junior Olympic Championships, June 25 to 29, at Highlands Ranch Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch, Colo. 

It was the second national title for the Tracy resident, who was also the top player in the under-8 competition at the 2012 Junior Olympics.

Krish won four matches in a row in this year’s 10-and-under gold bracket, each game by a margin of 10 or more points, until he got to the championship match against Timmy Hansen of Wellington, Fla.

Krish trailed 14-12 in the first game before he regained the serve and scored three in a row for the 15-14 win. He secured the championship with a 15-5 win in the second game.

He and his brother, Sahil Thakur, also finished in third place in the 14-and-under boys doubles competition. They went 2-1 through the tournament, including a 15-12, 5-15, 11-10 victory in the third-place match.
