By September 18, 2019

The Melbourne Vixens have signed Jamaica’s Kadie-Ann Dehaney to a new deal that will see the player return to Melbourne for the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season.

The 23-year-old Dehaney will now play a fourth season in Melbourne since joining the club in 2017.

“Kadie-Ann has been a great asset to us on and off the court since she joined us three years ago,” said Vixens head coach Simone McKinnis.

“She soaks up all the knowledge she has been given by coaching staff and players and is so determined to improve each season, every week.

“Kadie-Ann adds a level of dynamic presence on the court, allowing flexibility and options for us to develop the defensive unit in 2020 and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can bring next season.”

Dehaney made her international netball debut in the 2015 Netball World Cup against Samoa.

She participated at the 2013 Netball World Youth Cup in Glasgow, Scotland where Jamaica finished in third place.

She also captained the under-21 Sunshine Girls at the 2017 Netball World Youth Cup in Gaborone, Botswana whereby the team finished in fifth place.

In 2015, she earned the MVP award in the Berger Elite League final where her team the Clarendon Gators defeated the St James Sharpes.

    Jamaica sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has predictably been named to a shortlist for the 2019 IAAF Female World Athlete of the Year award.

    The 32-year-old Fraser-Pryce set the track alight at the Doha World Championships, this year, after clocking 10.71 to claim a fourth 100m world title.  The diminutive athlete is back to the peak of her powers after taking time off to have her first child two years ago.  Fraser-Pryce’s winning time was the fastest in the world over the distance this year, edging out compatriot Elaine Thompson’s 10.73.

    Joining the Jamaican on the overall list of 11 athletes is Beatrice Chepkoech, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Sifan Hassan, Brigid Kosgei, Mariya Lasitskene, Malaika Mihambo, Dalilah Muhammad, Salwa Eid Naser, Hellen Obiri and Yulimar Rojas.

    Fraser-Pryce, who won the award in 2013 after claiming the sprint double at the Moscow World Championships, will face stiff competition for the top prize.

    Muhammad broke the world record with 52.20 at the US Championships and went on to improve that mark to win the world 400m hurdles title in 52.16.  She then added the 4x400m title to her accolades.

    Hasan claimed the world 1,500m and 10,000m titles in Doha with world-leading times of 3:51.95 and 30:17.62.  She also won the IAAF Diamond League 1,500m and 5,000m titles in addition to breaking the world mile record with 4:12.33.

    Bahrain’s Eid Naser won the world 400m title in 48.14, the third-fastest time in history.  She also won the Diamond League title and three gold medals at the Asian Championships.
