Mayberry Investment and Supreme Ventures Limited will provide $1 million for every team member. This is according to JOA president Christopher Samuda. Samuda revealed that coach Francis is set to receive $2 million. Mayberry will provide a total of $13 million; this will be divided among the medalists.
The Sunshine Girls showed a lot of resilience in the recently concluded tournament. This is the first championship medal that the nation has won since 2007.
Samuda was full of praises for the players. She said the they showed resilience and personality in their performances earlier this month. These performances earned them many new fans from all parts of the world.
JOA provided an additional one million dollars to Sunshine Girl Latanya Wilson. She is a victim of a fire that burnt down her home in Rum Lane, Kingston. Wilson lost her Australian Super Netball League winners medal, her Commonwealth Games silver medal and her Netball World Cup bronze medal.
