Cambage made her national team debut against China at just 17 and ever since has become one of the side’s most dominant players. She played for the WNBL’s Dandenong Rangers and AIS before winning the MVP award as she led the Bulleen Boomers to the Championship title in the 2010-11 season.
She led the Australian side in scoring at the 2010 World Championships and was selected as the second pick in the 2011 WNBA Draft by the Tulsa Shock. She impressed in her rookie season making the WNBA All-Rookie Team.
Cambage made her Olympic debut at the London 2012 Games and was only behind Lauren Jackson in scoring after tallying 13.6 points along with 5.6 rebounds per game. She provided one of the highlights of the competition when she became the first woman to dunk in Olympic competition in Australia’s bronze-medal clash with Russia in which they prevailed 83-74.
Having not returned to the WNBA following London she has since lined up for Chinese sides Zhejiang, Beijing and Shanghai. Cambage has dominated in the CBA averaging 30 points and 11 rebounds in her time there.
After limited time in the green and gold due to injuries, Cambage returned to the Australian side for a series of camps and pre-Games European tour in which she was one of the team’s leading scorers and rebounders.
