Hollie Grima won a silver medal as a member of the Australian women’s basketball team in 2008. After narrowly missing selection for the 2004 Olympics, Grima established herself in the Opals’ roster. As well as her silver medal, Grima also won gold at the 2006 world championships and 2006 Commonwealth Games with the Opals. In Beijing, Grima featured as part of Australia’s feared frontcourt, playing both the centre and power forward positions. Australia lost to the US in the final in Beijing, marking the third consecutive Games it has reached the gold medal game undefeated only to lose to its American arch-rival.
