Basketballer, Stephanie Talbot, who grew up in the Yorke Peninsula town of Kadina has been named in the Australian Opals Basketball Team for the upcoming 2021 Olympic Games.

After playing for The Opals in the 2016 Games in Rio, the Tokyo Olympics will be her second Olympic campaign.

The side will be looking to improve this time around, following a disappointing quarterfinals loss to Serbia in Rio 5 years ago.

26-year-old Talbot is expected to play in the Aussie’s starting five.

She will join an exciting and experienced line-up, including fellow country SA girl, Tess Madgen.
