Lauren Jackson Is Announced Flag Bearer at the Opening Ceremony at London Olympics

As an avid basketball follower the announcement of Lauren Jackson to carry the flag into the Olympic Stadium in London was super exciting. My claim to fame is that in 1994 I coached Sale Under 14 Girls Basketball Team to the Grand Final of The Country Victorian State Championships. We won but playing for Albury on the other team was a very tall girls who was an extraordinary player. Her name was Lauren Jackson. That was Lauren Jackson as a 13 year old, now Lauren is one of the greatest women’s basketballers in the world.
