China, Egypt, Greece, Turkey and Zimbabwe were presented with an award at the semi-finals of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 in Sydney
SYDNEY, Sept. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — TCL, a global leading intelligent technology company, is proud to announce the winners of ‘Break & Believe‘, a global campaign conducted in partnership with the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) seeking to inspire schoolgirls to develop their self-confidence and unleash their potential through basketball around the world.
Since May, National Federations around the world took part in the ‘Break & Believe’ campaign by organizing local basketball events. By arranging an opportunity to meet and listen to current and former female players and coaches, young girls heard stories about how basketball and sport promote self-confidence and can help them overcome challenges in their lives.
An eight-person panel of judges comprising TCL and FIBA female executives selected the final winners from China, Egypt, Greece, Turkey and Zimbabwe as they best captured the spirit of the campaign through their submission videos. The videos are currently being highlighted at the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 in Sydney.
Each winning team will soon receive products including a TCL TV and a soundbar. Participants from all over the world will receive a certificate and a Women in Basketball photo book as a token of appreciation.
