Vitality Netball World Cup Preview: Peace Proscovia
Five Sunshine Coast Lightning players and Head Coach Noeline Taurua are headed to Liverpool to take part in the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019.
We spoke exclusively to Peace Proscovia about being selected as part of the Uganda She-Cranes and what representing her country means to her.
What Peace Proscovia had to say about representing Uganda She-Cranes in the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019
I feel blessed to be part of the She-Cranes team to represent Uganda, because it’s not easy to represent your country, especially when netball has grown to a level where there are so many good players
On life at the Lightning, heading into another Vitality Netball World Cup campaign
I feel humbled and blessed to be where I am right now, and my family is also more than happy for what I have achieved through netball.
It’s a joy.
On playing against her Lightning teammates:
It’s a challenge not only with me but when professional sports combines people from different countries and the time comes that you are no longer teammates, you are opposition.
You will use each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
The best place to learn [about] a person is in a competition.
