Thomas is an 18-year-old student of Auckland Grammar School that will be competing in Basketball at the Buenos Aires 2018 Olympic Youth Games.
Career highlight: Making this team and competing at the Youth Olympic Games will be my career highlight. I was also selected to attend the Nike All-Asia Camp last year in China.
How did you get into your sport? My brother started playing basketball at school and so I followed him into it. I have always been very enthusiastic about playing since then.
What do you love about the sport? I love that 3x3 basketball is exciting and fast paced. Also, because there are fewer players on the court there is more space to play and be creative in.
What inspires you? Being around great coaches and players inspires me to be the best player I can be. I understand that basketball can give me some incredible opportunities in life to go to some amazing places and meet some awesome people. My goal of a US college scholarship is what drives me every day. I would also love to play professionally after college.
