Lauren Jackson a wax dummy?

By 18 December 2012 8

Remaining obsessed with the player who can’t play, the Capitals have the thrilling news that Wodonga’s own Lauren Jackson might be immortalised (if you vote for her sufficient numbers) in wax for Madame Tussauds effort to fleece the colonials more efficiently:

Jayco Australian Opals and Canberra Capitals star Lauren Jackson is one of six Australian sporting greats nominated to be immortalised in wax at the world-famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Sydney.
The four-time Olympic Medallist is one of the most recognisable sports stars in Australia and could join the likes of Cathy Freeman and Ian Thorpe with your help.

Jackson, the first female Australian flag bearer at an Olympic Games, is one of six sporting legends nominated for the honour and with your support she can become the first Australian basketballer to be recreated in wax form.

“It has been a whirlwind 12 months and this was such an unexpected surprise to top off an amazing year,” Jackson said.

“It was a huge honour and privilege to lead the Australian team and be chosen to carry the flag in the Opening Ceremony at the London Olympics.

“This is also is a great honour to be recognised as a nominee for this activity and I’m most grateful. There really are some great sporting legends in Madame Tussauds and it would be amazing to have my figure alongside them.”

Fans of Jackson can vote at the Madame Tussauds Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/madametussaudssydney.

I remember seeing her vomiting in Civic after her 1st WNBL grand final for the AIS.

I hope they wax her in that pose!

Complete with all her tatts, I hope! Unlike ACTION, who decided they were unsightly: http://the-riotact.com/perhaps-the-bus-was-a-bit-much-capitals-crashing

If this is correct then she is a true Oztraylian sporting hero!

For a long time she was the greatest basketballer in the world. A title no other Australian could claim. Although her recent carrer has been plagued by injury – many people forget what a great athlete Jackson was.

In many male dominated sports such a football or cricket a player of Jackson’s talent would be popping up in wax and probably bronze all over the place. We would even fight about what town she was from.

Lauren Jackson getting waxed? I’d pay good money to see that.

Lauren is awesome! Stop being so mean. I’d like to see you say this stuff to her face, I reckon there’s not many people she couldn’t beat-up.
