Cambage was involved in an argument during that match. The incident and the star’s role in it is the subject of an investigation by the Australian Basketball Association.
“The circumstances surrounding the skirmishes in which Lise Campage was involved are currently under investigation for possible violations of the Integrity Framework and Code of Conduct,” the union said without comment.
In the cancellation, Campag said she had panic attacks because she thought she would have to go to Tokyo, given the health measures in place there against the coronavirus.
“It’s no secret that I’ve had psychological problems in the past. I didn’t feel comfortable with the impending Olympic bubble,” she said on her social media. “No family. No friends. No fans. To be honest. It scares me. I had panic attacks, didn’t sleep or eat anymore.”
“I can’t be the Liz that everyone wants to watch perform the opal (national team title, editor). The cancellation breaks my heart, but I have to think about my mental and physical health.”
Campag also caused riots at the beginning of May, as a photo session was missed by the Australian Olympic Committee for a lack of diversity. Then she threatened to boycott the games.
