‘ I am great. It’s taken me a long time to say that’

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

AUSSIE bas­ket­ball star Liz Cam­bage is fi­nally OK with say­ing it — she’s great.

“It took me un­til last year that I re­ally be­lieved it, like, ‘Wow, I am great’,” the 28-year-old said.

“It’s taken me a long time to be able to say that out lloud. Peo­ple loolook at it as aar­ro­gance or ccock­i­ness — but look at the facts. It iis what it is.

“Un­til som­some­one can shut me down one-on-one,o then I am go­ing to wear it with pride.”

Along with own­er­ship of her tal­ent has been the rise of her star sta­tus. Cam­bage plays for the Las Ve­gas Aces and Aus­tralian Opals and is wor­shipped by bas­ket­ball lovers across the world, par­tic­u­larly in the

US, China and

Australia.

Such is her sta­tus in the US she re­cently earned a cov­eted nude por­trait in ESPN mag­a­zine’s an­nual

Body is­sue. “I loved do­ing it,” she smiles.
