Basketball ace gets Olympic call
Temi Fagbenle will represent Team GB’s women’s basketball squad at this summer’s Olympics.
The 19-year-old spent much of her childhood in London and began playing the sport aged 14.
Fagbenle returned to her native United States to attend the Blair Academy, the former high school of London-born NBA star Luol Deng, in 2008 and was called into GB’s under-20 squad last year.
She will line-up alongside fellow Londoner Azania Stewart at the Games and GB women’s head coach Tom Maher said: “We are delighted to be able to announce that we have picked our team and really think it is the right mix of players that will represent Great Britain in the appropriate way.”
