Ever wondered what you look like when on court? Capturing priceless moments in time - especially under pressure situations - makes for mesmerizing viewing. How Mark got himself into this position is baffling, but nonetheless entertaining. Click on the photo below, then answer the question. This is…

A) Mark Monaghan’s new “break-dance-squash” move
B) Squash on ice
C) The famous, but rarely used “rolling-on-your-back-over-the-shoulder-blind-backhand-volley-drop-nick” shot.
D) Yoga on the squash court
E) Mark Monaghan on the end of a full body dive for the ball
F) Why Mark has a pulled groin
G) Mark’s audition tape to “So You Think You Can Dance?”
H) Not how the human body should bend
I) Not a sight for sore eyes… or any eyes for that matter
J) A forward double-twist somersault serve in the pike position

Answer: E) Desperation is caught on camera as Mark sacrifices his body just to keep the ball in play. His full length dive successfully let him retrieve the ball only for his opponent to put the next shot away for a winner. We give him an ‘A’ for effort, a ‘B’ for execution, a ‘D’ for artistic impression, and with a degree of difficulty of 3.7, an overall score of 8.1 out of 10.
