Athlete Biography

One of the last players cut from the London 2012 squad, Erin Phillips will get another chance to help Australia to claim a historic gold medal at Rio after winning silver with the team at the Beijing Games.

Having made her national debut at just 19, Phillips soon broke into the Australian senior team where she was a part of the side’s that won World Championship and Commonwealth Games gold in 2006. In the same year she played her first season in the WNBA with the Connecticut Sun.

After winning Beijing silver, the 5”8 guard headed to Europe playing in Israel and Poland, where she won three straight titles between 2010-12. She began playing for the Indian Fever with whom she won a WNBA title with in 2012.

She’d go on to become a WNBA champion for the second time alongside Australian teammate Penny Taylor at the Phoenix Mercury in 2014. Phillips has since played for the LA Sparks and the Dallas Wings in the US.

The Melbourne native was the third highest scorer for the Australian team at the 2014 World Cup as the Aussie side claimed third. She scored 8.7 points as well as 4 rebounds and 4 assists for the side.
