Just like the Williams sisters, the Nigerian-American sisters, Nneka ogwumike and Chiney Ogwumike are making it big in the sporting world.
Nneka plays for the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), after being drafted No. 1 overall in the 2012 WNBA Draft. Soon after being drafted, Ogwumike signed an endorsement deal with Nike.
She is the older sister of Chiney Ogwumike, who also plays for the Sparks. She was named WNBA MVP for the 2016 WNBA season; as well as winning the WNBA Finals that year in 2016.
Chiney As of 2020, became the first Black woman to host a national radio show for ESPN, also being the first WNBA player to do so. She was one of the first and youngest commentators ever to be named a NBA analyst for the network covering the NBA, WNBA, and variety of sports, while simultaneously playing in the WNBA.
