PCYC Queensland is proud to announce Deadly 3s Ambassador

PCYC Queensland’s Indigenous programs team is proud to welcome Danny Morseu as our 2019 Deadly 3s Ambassador.

Danny Morseu was the first Torres Strait Islander to ever represent Australia at the Olympic Games and played for the Australian basketball team at the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, and at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.

Danny moved to Melbourne in 1978, where he played in St Kilda’s championship-winning teams of 1979 and 1980. He played 217 National Basketball League (NBL) games in total, winning another NBL championship with the Brisbane Bullets in 1987, and is now a member of the NBL Hall of Fame.

As the 2019 Deadly 3s Ambassador, Danny is an excellent role model for the Indigenous community and mentor for the participants.

PCYC Queensland’s Deadly 3s is the largest Indigenous 3×3 Basketball Tournament in Australia held in Far North Queensland, with teams coming from across Townsville, Mornington Island and the north of Cape York to take part.

Held as part of the PCYC Queensland’s Indigenous Community Sport and Recreation Program (ICSRP), the tournament involves 3×3 mixed gender teams and is endorsed by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA).

“Deadly 3s is a celebration of Indigenous communities, sport and culture, where participants come together to play a key role in sports development and community engagement,” said PCYC Queensland Indigenous Programs General Manager, Andy Cassidy.
