Kristi Harrower has re-signed with the Bendigo Spirit for next season.
The 37 year old made the announcement this afternoon.
Harrower said she had taken her time to make the decision to play again, making sure her body was in good shape.
"Having the Achilles injury was tough, bit the Olympic people were saying the could see I'd recaptured some of the speed and agility I'd missed for the past couple of years," she said.
"I said to the club I wanted to see how things went in London, then take a break for a few weeks to refresh and decide if I wanted to play on."
Harrower was full of praise for Bendigo and the Spirit.
"Bendigo people have supported me so strongly, I love the city and I think it's an exciting time for the Bendigo Spirit as we enter our sixth season.
"We've brought together a great group of girls, some players who have been here for a few years now, some key new recruits and some new young faces.
'I'm really looking forward to it.
"I think that with this team, if we work hard and all pull in the same direction, we can be a serious finals threat."
The 163cm point guard was part of the original Spirit roster when the club debuted in the 2007-08 season.
The Opals star has played 268 WNBL games with four clubs and has been to four Olympic Games.
The announcement came a day after Canadian Olympian Chelsea Aubry re-signed for the Spirit for a fourth consecutive season.
Aubry has become a core part of the Spirit roster over the past few years and will once again team up with centre Gabe Richards and new American forward Kathleen Scheer in Bendigo’s front court.
Last season Aubry averaged seven points and four rebounds a game and registered a field goal percentage of 47 per cent and a three point percentage of 39 per cent.
