Breanna Stewart (WNBA)

Breanna Stewart had put together one of the most decorated 12 months in the history of professional basketball when she ruptured her right Achilles in the EuroLeague championship game in April of 2019. Stewart, known colloquially as “Stewie,” said she paid more than $30,000 of her own money to rehab an injury that’s one of the most difficult to overcome for a basketball player. But it didn’t slow her down all that much.

The Seattle Storm forward picked up right where she left off with five championships (WNBA, Russian Premier League, EuroLeague, Tokyo Olympics, Commissioner’s Cup) within a 10-month span and an MVP in each. Before the injury, she had strung together titles at the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup (Team USA) and WNBA Finals (Storm) while being named MVP in each along with MVP league MVP and USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year awards.
