Michele Timms Helps To Launch Molten Ball Relay
Ahead of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup in Australia, Michele Timms AM is helping to launch the Molten Ball Relay designed to connect junior basketball clubs across the country.
Molten, FIBA and the Local Organising Committee, have teamed up to provide junior players across the country the opportunity to see the official Women’s World Cup Ball as FIBA’s flagship women’s event returns to Australian shores for the first time since 1994.
Timms, a FIBA hall of fame member and former Australian player, has joined to promote the Molten Ball Relay and encourage clubs and young females to support the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.
Timms said: “It’s been great to come back to Bulleen Basketball Club, my first Club, to officially launch the Molten Ball Relay as part of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.”
“I’m ecstatic to be an ambassador for the Molten Ball Relay because it’s not only going to deliver an underflow of excitement in the lead up to the World Cup, but it’s also a great opportunity to bring together the basketball community all around Australia,” said Timms.
Timms also said the young players will get a chance to see the actual Molten ball that is going to be used during the World Cup and will be able to send the players messages of support ahead of the game.
Molten brand marketing mead, Noa Hasegawa, also commented: “The Molten Ball Relay is designed to connect communities across the country in the lead up to the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.”
“We want as many young people to feel part of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup and through the Molten Ball Relay.
“They’ll have the opportunity to share their good luck messages with participating nations, see first-hand the limited edition 2022 World Cup Molten Ball and much more,” said Hasegawa.
The Molten Ball Relay will see the official Women’s World Cup Ball visit 20 local Clubs across Australia.
In addition to the Relay, will be a Female Local Champions program, where female coaches, referees and administrators from across the country will be nominated.
Of the nominees, three winners will be flown to Sydney for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup to meet Michele Timms and learn from leading coaches and administrators.
