SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles is honoring his daughter’s request to hang their medals together in their home.

Joe Ingles and Australia won their first ever Olympic medal in men’s basketball after winning the bronze in the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games. When he got home from Tokyo, his daughter had one simple request that Ingles shared on Instagram.

“Milla told me after we won Bronze that we have the same medals now…,” Ingles posted. “Hers being a participation for soccer season. Then also went on to say that they have to hang next to other so… Damn straight they hang next to each other now.”

Ingles helped Australia to the Bronze medal after beating Slovenia. Now, Ingles will focus on getting a championship with the Utah Jazz when things begin in September in preparation for the 2021-22 season.
