Australian and WNBA star Liz Cambage, 29, has withdrawn from the Australian Olympic Team and will no longer compete in Tokyo due to her mental health. This would have been Cambage's third Olympics.
The Las Vegas Aces player announced her withdrawal from the Australian Opals and the Olympics on Friday just hours after reports that she was involved in a physical and verbal altercation during a closed-door scrimmage against Nigeria, ESPN reported.
It's believed that the 29-year-old was involved in another incident after she broke team protocols and went out in Las Vegas.
