About the FIBA U19 Women's World Championship
The FIBA U19 Women's World Championship, formerly known as the FIBA World Championship for Junior Women, is where the stars of tomorrow are born.
In the past, World and Olympic champions such as Diana Taurasi (USA), Lauren Jackson (Australia) and Janeth Arcain (Brazil), along with icons Celine Dumerc (France) and Lijie Miao (China), all made their mark in this tournament on their way to glittering international careers. More recently, Australia's Liz Cambage, the USA’s Breanna Stewart and Maya Moore - the MVP of the 2014 FIBA Women's World Championship - have each shined bright at the event.
The inaugural event took place in the United States in 1985. Staged every four years from 1979 to 2005, it has been held every two years since 2007.
