Boomers guard Nathan Sobey put out an impassioned plea on social media on Sunday after his cherished Olympic bronze medal was stolen from his home in Brisbane.

The Bullets star, who was part of Australia’s historic first men’s basketball medal campaign in Tokyo last year, had the medal stolen among other items on Saturday night.

“Unfortunately last night, our house was broken into and my bronze medal was stolen along with some other small things. If anyone out there has any information please let us know!!” he posted on Twitter.

Sobey’s plea has been retweeted more than 400 times, including by Boomers icon Andrew Gaze.


Anyone with information on the break-in is urged to call Queensland Police on 131 444.

Sobey scored 14 points for the Bullets on Saturday night in Brisbane as they notched a 94-86 win over the Tasmania JackJumpers.

One of the most consistent performers in the NBL, he is averaging 16 points, four assists and four rebounds for the Bullets, who have jumped ahead of Adelaide into seventh spot with a 6-10 record.

Sobey was used as a back-up guard by Boomers coach Brian Goorjian during the Olympic campaign, often providing the team with energetic bursts to support veteran stars Patty Mills and Matthew Dellavedova.
