Lauren Jackson


Basketball superstar Lauren Jackson tells Sam Squiers what it was like to come back and play at a World Cup at 41 years of age, six years after retiring! Jackson has insisted publicly that the tournament was a one-off return to international competition, but she hints at the possibility of another – for Paris 2024. She also goes into details about her relationship with Liz Cambage, her life-changing professional stint playing in Russia and why she needed a girdle and g-string to play in the Opals’ iconic bodysuits. Lauren opens up on her awkwardness as a teenager, how she struggled to make representative teams and how she coped with home sickness when she was drafted number one overall in the WNBA Draft.
