Australian superstar Liz Cambage’s Tokyo Olympics campaign was questioned after multiple suspected incidents in the team’s Las Vegas camp.
It is understood that Cambage was involved in physical conflict in a private melee against Nigeria. This led to fierce abuse.
According to reports, the four-time WNBA All-Star player also violated the team agreement to go to Las Vegas, where she played with the WNBA’s Aces team, and it is understood that team officials are investigating another incident.
Cambage’s behavior disturbed Australian teammates and officials, and it is believed that she might be eliminated from the Opals team in Tokyo.
The Australian Basketball Association and the Australian Olympic Committee are investigating the suspected incidents. These incidents have been confirmed by multiple sources and have been contacted for comments.
The veteran center did not participate in Thursday’s WNBA All-Star Game after bumping his hip during Opals training.
If Cambage is excluded from Tokyo, given that she is the best and most influential player on the team, it will be a huge blow to Opals.
Opals only selected 11 players for the Olympics and there is no reserve team. If Cambage is withdrawn, it will be reduced to 10.
