Legendary WNBA Basketball Player and Former UConn Star
Regarded as the world’s premier point guard, Sue Bird is the WNBA’s All-Time Leader in Assists and known for being selfless, driven, encouraging, funny, and smart. Bird is a seasoned veteran and a born leader who has dominated at every level. She is one of only seven women to win an Olympic Gold Medal (she’s won five), a World Championship Gold Medal (she’s won four), an NCAA Championship (she’s won two), and a WNBA Championship (she’s won four – the last just weeks before her 40th birthday). Sue is also a five-time Euroleague Champion, a twelve-time WNBA All-Star, and was voted by the fans as one of the WNBA’s Top 15 Players of All Time.
Off the court, Sue spends time as a basketball analyst for ESPN, as an NBA front office executive, and as an outspoken and visible activist advocating for Black Lives, equality, health and wellness, and expanding opportunities for girls and all marginalized people.
