Meet Sue Bird: a young girl who follows her heart to become a basketball champion and take the WNBA by Storm.

The Heart of the Storm is the inspiring story of Sue Bird, a little girl who couldn’t stop moving. As soon as she could walk, she ran, jumped, or climbed instead. Sue loved all kinds of sports but the rhythm and grace of basketball quickly won her heart.

Follow Sue on her childhood journey, full of energy and determination, to becoming one of the most versatile, inspirational athletes of all time and a leader on and off the court. Sue Bird’s grit, authenticity, and heart fuel her growing into greatness on her journey to winning four WNBA championships with the Seattle Storm and five Olympic gold medals.

Sue’s story is also a love letter to Seattle—the city where she has spent her entire professional career as the heart of the Seattle Storm.
