Former Australian Diamonds coach Norma Plummer has been recognised as a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AM) on the Australia Day honours list.
Plummer was awarded for her significant services to the sport of netball as a coach and representative player – more information.
An international coaching icon, Plummer delivered Australia back-to-back World titles in spectacular fashion in Singapore in 2011.
Plummer told westcoastfever.com.au that passion is what has driven her throughout her career.
“You don’t do a job like mine for rewards – you do it for the passion and the love of the game, and of course the people that you meet along the way,” Plummer said.
“I am extremely pleased to receive the Order of Australia Medal, and be recognised for the work I have done for my sport.”
Plummer will be invited to a ceremony later this year where she will be formally recognized
Heading into her second ANZ Championship season with the Fever, Plummer told the Canberra Times that she has no plans to stop her involvement in a sport that she has been besotted with since first playing in primary school.
“While I’m capable, still making decisions and coming up with new ideas, I’ll keep going. It’s not a job to do me, I just love it,” Plummer said.
All the Board and Team at Netball NSW and the NSW Swifts congratulate Norma Plummer AM on her outstanding achievement.
