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.

    THat would just make my life great if I was handed the flag and that was what she was feeling at that moment and going that great in the basket it would just match it and I wonder if any younger people are going to be handed the flag in 2016
