Sue Bird        

Former Professional Basketball Player for the Seattle Storm; Olympic Gold-Medalist & Co-Founded TOGETHXR

Regarded as the world’s premier point guard, Sue Bird is a universally celebrated star and the WNBA’s All-Time Leader in Assists. She is known for being selfless, driven, encouraging, funny and smart and receives regular coverage for her fashion prowess.

Seemingly ageless and playing some of the best basketball of her career at 40, 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). Sue is also a five-time Euroleague Champion, an eleven-time WNBA All-Star, was voted by the fans as one of the WNBA’s Top 15 Players of All Time.

Bird publicly confirmed on June 16, 2022 that she will retire from playing professional basketball after the 2022 WNBA season. Her season ended on September 7, 2022 with the Storm's playoff loss to the Las Vegas Aces.

Off the court, Bird spends time as a basketball analyst for ESPN, as a front office executive with the Denver Nuggets and advocating for equality, LGBTQ+ rights, Black Lives, universal health and wellness and expanding opportunities for girls. In 2021, she co-founded TOGETHXR, a media and commerce company alongside Alex Morgan, Chloe Kim and Simone Manuel. TOGETHXR is "where culture, activism lifestyle and sports converge", aiming to "shatter the often narrow depictions of women in the media".
