Britain’s Jo Leedham retires

At 34, Jo Leedham has met the end of one of the most prolific careers in British basketball history.

Jo Leedham is known in France for having spent five seasons at Bourges and one at Villeneuve d’Ascq. With Tango, she won the Eurocup and two titles of champions of France. Just before, she had revealed herself to the whole planet during the London Olympics in 2012, compiling 29 points and 8 rebounds against France which had to be extended to get out of the trap set by the tenacious British. She finished her career in her country, at the London Lions.

“So many ups and downs,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “So many trophies, cups and championships won (and some lost too). So many amazing teammates and friends who have crossed my path, and I’m lucky some still are. Thank you all. So many memories. So many incredible moments that I never thought I could score 3000 points, be drafted in the WNBA, Olympian, EuroCup winner, EuroLeague player for eight seasons and many more… Trips and stays in so many of country. »
