Sunday Aryang (netball) made her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where she was part of the Australian team that won gold. The exciting young defender’s netball journey began when her parents, Clement and Ariet, left Ethiopia in 2002 and settled in Perth with their two infant daughters – Rose, the eldest, and Sunday – who were later joined by little sister Ruth and younger brother John. The girls started playing netball in primary school and were spotted by Netball WA’s Sue Stacey, who would become their mentor and biggest supporter. Sunday admitted that she initially didn’t know what netball was and only started playing the game because her school didn’t have a basketball team. Sunday made her debut for the West Coast Fever in 2019 and earned Australian under-21 selection for the World Youth Cup in 2020 which was later cancelled. She made Australian netball history in January 2022 when she became the first African-born player to represent the Diamonds after entering the game against South Africa in the Quad Series in England.
