A duel Canadian and United States citizen, Neal grew up just outside of Toronto and attended the prep school, Appleby College, where he was introduced to the game of squash. Neal quickly fell in love with the sport and was soon playing on the Canadian amateur circuit even representing Canada at an International level.
After spending years on the North American Squash circuit, Neal decided a professional squash career was not for him and opted to sign with a Toronto talent agent and began auditioning professionally.
Neal joins a growing cast of celebrities to back squash’s Olympic bid including tennis greats Roger Federer, Andre Agassi, Kim Clijsters, Stefan Edberg, and Andre Agassi as well as other top athletes from sports such as rugby, cricket, football, cycling, badminton, weightlifting, diving and shooting.
Yesterday, Sunday July 28, marked exactly six weeks until the International Olympic Committee will decide if squash can join the Olympics.
