‘Proud’ Msomi celebrates century with win

South Africa's Bongiwe Msomi spoke of her pride after she became the latest player to celebrate a century of international caps at the Vitality Netball World Cup.

Msomi was part of the Proteas team which recorded the tournament’s highest goal tally in an individual game so far, as they beat Fiji 90-35 today.

Afterwards, she said:

“It means so much. I forgot it was going to be my 100th cap today until we got to a meeting. There was a little bit of a celebration before we came here. As honoured as I am, I’m really glad to see the performance that the girls put in on the court. 

“For me, it’s always been about the team and playing some great netball for my country. Sometimes, you try to do that and it doesn’t happen, and when it does happen, then you take the pride from that. 

“I’m excited. Not everyone gets that (to 100) and if you do, it means you’ve worked so hard to get there, so I’m really proud of how far I’ve come.”

Msomi follows England’s Jo Harten and Northern Ireland’s Caroline O’Hanlon in bringing up the milestone at the Vitality Netball World Cup.
