No time for whimsy, Timmsy

ICONIC Australian basketball superstar and FIBA Hall of Famer, Michele Timms, has been selected to coach the World Team V The Americas at the Aurora Games Festival in Albany next month.

A first-of-its-kind sports and entertainment festival featuring world class competition in women’s tennis, gymnastics, basketball, figure-skating, ice hockey and beach volleyball, the Games in Albany, New York, will run from August 20-25.

All-star teams made up of athletes who have accounted for more then 100 Olympic, World and National championships from The Americas vs The World, will be led by honourary captains Jackie Joyner Kersee and Nadia Comaneci as they compete for the Babe Didrikson Zaharias Trophy.

The Aurora Games were named after the Roman Goddess of Dawn, the dawn representing the beginning of a new day where anything is possible.

Timms won Silver and Bronze medals as an Australian Olympian, captained the Opals, was a WNBA star with Phoenix Mercury (her #7 uniform retired by the franchise), and has been inducted to both the FIBA Hall of Fame and the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame.

She pioneered Aussie players plying their trade in Europe and was recognised internationally as a superstar.

Timms was the forerunner of Australian international basketball giants such as Lauren Jackson, Penny Taylor and Liz Cambage, putting our athletes on the global map.

"(I'm) proud to be selected as the coach," Timms said in a social media post today.

"Can't wait."
