ESPN Films and espnW’s Nine for IX series continues with Swoopes, the 5th film in the Line-Up, tonight, July 30, at 8pm.

Directed by Hannah StormSwoopes follows Sheryl Swoopes, previously famously labeled as the female Michael Jordan, winning a national championship with Texas Tech, three Olympic gold medals, three MVP awards and four consecutive championships with the Houston Comets of the WNBA, the league she helped start. She even had a Nike shoe named after her, the Air Swoopes. Off the court, she has had a life full of transitions. She gave birth to her son, Jordan, during the inaugural season of the WNBA. Later, she divorced her high school sweetheart and became the highest-profile athlete in her sport to acknowledge she was gay. She has struggled with love, money and personal identity.

August 6The Diplomat

August 13Runner
