Taking place in Buenos Aires between October 6-18, Arcain will join the likes of local favorite and Youth Olympic Games Ambassador, Luis Scola to promote the event and encourage those who will be participating.
Arcain is certainly a legend of Olympic women’s basketball and considered as being among the all-time greats for her ability to put points on the board.
During 2004 in Athens, Arcain became Brazil’s all-time leading Olympic scorer and was confirmed as one of the most prolific players to have ever graced the Games.
With this kind of eye-popping track record, it’s no surprise she will take up her role and be a big success. The task will be to inspire the new generation of ballers who will take part in the 3x3 tournament at the Youth Olympics Games between October 7-17.
Medals will be distrusted for both the men and women, with the extra thrill of a women’s shoot-out contest and men’s dunk contest.
