Women's World Cup Basketball
It was exciting to be shooting the Women's World Cup basketball in Sydney in September and October 2022. The 12 best women's basketball teams gathered at Sydney's Olympic Park. Teams from USA, Canada, Mali, Australia, Japan, Korea, China, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Puerto Rico, France and Belgium battled it out over 10 days of competition.
The USA began the World Cup as strong favourites, and that proved to be well deserved. They went through the competition undefeated and were clearly the best team.
The best game of the tournament was the semi final between China and Australia. It was a very close game, with a great atmosphere from a capacity crowd. China tied the game in the last minute, and went ahead with 3.5 seconds left with a pair of successful free throws. The Australian Opals had one last chance to tie or win the game, but the shot hit the ring and deflected away, putting China into the gold medal game and the Opals into the bronze medal match with Canada.
Photographing the tournament was challenging and fun. The games were terrific, and the behind the scenes activities provided lots of opportunities to document a great event in a unique way.
