Former President Barack Obama congratulates Chicago Sky on first WNBA title

Asia's Tech News Daily

Former President Barack Obama congratulated his hometown Chicago Sky on winning their first title in franchise history with a Game 4 win over the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday.

Obama supported the Sky throughout their postseason run, making it as the No. 6 seed with a .500 regular-season record. They are the first team not seeded No. 1 or 2 to win the WNBA title.

Congrats to our new WNBA champs, @ChicagoSky! I couldn’t be prouder of this team — they worked hard for this moment, and have made our city proud.

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 17, 2021

“Congrats to our new WNBA champs, @ChicagoSky! I couldn’t be prouder of this team — they worked hard for this moment, and have made our city proud,” Obama tweeted.

Candace Parker joined her hometown team this past offseason after playing the first 13 seasons of her career with the Los Angeles Sparks. She won a title in her first season with the Sky, capping off a storybook season.
