At age 41 Sue Bird is still making history. During Sunday’s WBA semi-final game against the Los Vegas Aces, Sue achieved yet another accolade in her long line of records and achievements. She now holds the record for most playoff assists in WNBA history (342). More importantly to Sue and her teammates, the Storm pulled off an upset on the road setting herself up for a potential WNBA final appearance with a win on Wednesday night. In fact, Sue is unbeaten in the semifinals and WNBA Finals, leading the Storm to titles all four times the team has advanced that far.
A 4x WNBA champ and 5x Olympic champ, Sue is closing in on her final games as a pro after 19 incredible years. Her impact on the league can be felt at every level. Perhaps the words that best describe her legacy are longevity and resilience. Her nearly two-decade career has not been without trials and challenges. Sue has faced numerous injuries, many of them career-threatening. But her resilience, commitment to the training plan, and whole body wellness routine have helped her go where no player has gone before.
The 41-year-old is playing better than ever, in part, thanks to her all-natural lifestyle and consistent focus on recovery. She prioritizes small, every day wins to make sure she's ready for the next big moment. Sue’s been Mendi's resident product tester since the early days. In fact, the Mendi Stick was originally her idea. We gave Sue a clean, easy-to-apply topical CBD solution for her on-the-go lifestyle. Sue’s all-natural, smart and consistent recovery routine allows her to continue breaking records even into her 40s.
As for what’s next, Sue’s playing days may be numbered, but she’s far from slowing down. She cemented herself as an all-star analyst, spent time in the Denver Nuggets front office, and is a fierce advocate for women's sports and equality across the sport and cultural landscape. There is no doubt that her next move will be GOAT-worthy just like her playing career.
For now, we are excited to sit back and watch our idol work her magic and defy time for a few more memorable nights.
