American basketball player Caitlin Clark, 22, has shared her feelings about not being included in the squad for the Olympic Games in Paris later this summer. On Sunday, Clark stated that she had received word from USA Basketball on their choice, and she wished the team well in the forthcoming tournament.

“As far as I’m aware, that is the world’s most competitive squad, and things may have turned out differently. I can’t wait to see them. I will be cheering them on to the gold. When I was younger, I used to watch the Olympics. Seeing them will be entertaining.” Clark was quoted as saying by Yahoo News.

“It gives you something to work for—a dream,” she said as she described her goals. “I hope to be able to visit there one day.

‘I hope to be there… in four years’

“I hope to be there when the time comes, which should be in four years.”

She clearly possesses hope and determination as she eagerly awaits the chance to represent her homeland.

USA Basketball has not yet released the official squad roster or offered a statement regarding the decision to leave Clark off the national team despite her aspirations and the fans’ backing.

Many people are left wondering about the standards and choices made during the selection process.

Due to her strong relationship with USA Basketball, Clark was asked about the prospect of joining the team if one of the players was injured. She called it a “great opportunity”.

She was excited about the opportunity to participate, reiterating her readiness to help the squad if necessary. She acknowledged the dignity and honour of representing USA Basketball while demonstrating her devotion to her team and making it obvious that her commitment to the Indiana Fever is still her top priority.

According to USA Today’s Christine Brennan, she was excluded from the Olympic squad because the team members were worried about her fans reacting negatively if she was allowed to play only for a limited time.

According to The Athletic, the US Olympic women’s basketball team will include A’ja Wilson, Breanna Stewart, Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner, Alyssa Thomas, Napheesa Collier, Jewell Loyd, Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, Sabrina Ionescu, Chelsea Gray, and Kahleah Copper.
