Opals rising star Ezi Magbegor knows what it takes to achieve success in a no-frills COVID bubble.
The 21-year-old was part of the WNBA championship-winning Seattle Storm last year which played their entire season under strict biosecurity restrictions in Florida.
For 97 days, Magbegor was part of a league-wide lockdown dubbed the "Wubble" at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, with players essentially only leaving their accommodation to train or play.
Having come through that three-month period with a championship, Magbegor is confident she and her Australian teammates are more than ready for whatever restrictions await them at this year's Tokyo Olympics.
"A lot of the girls were either in the WNBA bubble or the WNBL hub so we've all experienced that," she told AAP.
"That's going to help the group that does go away together because they've already got that familiarity with kind of just going from practices to games.
"I definitely think that's going to help."
Magbegor was just a rookie when she helped the Opals claim gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, but is chasing selection for her first Olympics as a huge X-factor player for coach Sandy Brondello.
The 193cm centre says this week's camp under Brondello for the Opals on the Gold Coast has been among the hardest she's been a part of.
Getting the New Zealand-born daughter of Nigerian parents to maximise her ability is exactly why Brondello is challenging the youngster.
"I'm demanding a lot of her on the court because she has that potential," Brondello told AAP.
"She can do it. She's so coachable. They all are, but she's probably on another level.
"Her athleticism, she can be a gamechanger, because she's a six-foot-five girl that can move like that and rebound.
"Still learning the game and still growing, but we know we've got a really special player.
"I look forward to see what she can accomplish, not just this year, but in the years to come, decades to come."
