Lauren Jackson

Lauren Jackson AO (basketball) is widely regarded as one of the all-time greats of Australian basketball female or male. A four-time Olympian, having won three silver and one bronze medal, she also led Australia to gold at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, the first time basketball was included on the sport program at the Games. Jackson was a superstar in the biggest and best women’s competition in the world, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), after the Seattle Storm selected her as the overall No 1 draft pick in 2001, viewing her as a franchise player. She played 308 games for Seattle between 2001 and 2012 before injury forced her into retirement, winning two championships and a host of personal accolades, including three Most Valuable Player awards, and earning selection in the All-Star team seven times.
