Molly Rhone (OJ)
Molly made sporting history in 2003. At the congress of the International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA) held in Jamaica, Rhone became the first and only Jamaican female to head an international sporting body.
She was president of the Jamaica Netball Association for 10 years and vice-president of the then International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA), now INF, from 1999 to 2003.
She has been president of netball's world governing body since 2003 and was re-elected to another four years in office that will take her to 2015.
The INF, with its headquarters in Manchester, England, was created in 1960 and is responsible for world rankings, maintaining the rules for netball and organising the World Netball Championships and all major netball international tournaments. The organisation has five regional areas: Africa, the Americas including the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.
In 2011, Rhone was conferred with the Order of Jamaica and has received numerous other awards as a sports administrator and for her work in netball across the globe. She was also named the 2013 recipient of the prestigious Sagicor Iconic Award for her contribution to the development of the sport in Jamaica and the world.
