Gems gunning for Gold
Just over a year ago, 12 of Australia's finest young female basketball players endeavoured on a journey that captivated the minds and hearts of the Australian basketball community.
That team was the Under 17 national team, better known as the Sapphires, and the journey culminated in a World Championship gold medal after dispatching of the United States in the semi-finals and demolishing Italy in the championship game. Fast forward 12 months, and eight members of that side will soon attempt to secure their second gold medal in as many years at the FIBA Under 19 Women’s World Cup in Italy, with the tournament commencing on July 22.
