Superstar Athlete Breaks Another Record

(DailyEmailNews.com) – In a true showcase of American talent, Standout Iowa Hawkeyes player Caitlin Clark has recently shattered records by having the highest-selling jersey in history for a draft pick across all sports categories.

TMZ reported that after the Indiana Fever selected her as the first overall pick in the 2024 WNBA draft, her No. 22 jersey preorders on Fanatics, the league’s official online retailer, quickly sold out.

This jersey sales milestone is the latest in a series of achievements for Clark, who has left an permanent mark on NCAA basketball as the all-time leading scorer among both female and male athletes.

In an interview with “Good Morning America” after being drafted, Clark shared how she felt about stepping into professional basketball, stating, “I always believed in myself.”

“Also I worked really hard for it. I think that’s what I’m really proud of is like, I earned it. I deserve it. Nothing was ever given to me. More than anything just believe in myself,” she added.

Clark also said she was excited about joining the Indiana Fever and playing alongside Aliyah Boston, last year’s first overall pick, during an ESPN interview.

She highlighted the perfect match between her skills and the organization’s commitment to advancing women’s basketball.

“For myself, I can’t imagine a more perfect fit, a better place for me to start my professional career, an organization that really just believes in women’s basketball and wants to do everything the right way,” Clark remarked.

She looked forward to playing with Boston, noting the synergy between Boston’s prowess as a post player and her own skills as a point guard.

“My biggest job is I’m just feeding Aliyah the ball every single day. That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to be in there and be like, go make a layup. She’s going to make my life easy,” she said.

Reflecting on the journey ahead, Clark admits how new her professional path feels and the learning curve it entails. She also values the support system around her as she navigates this new chapter.

“I’m 22 years old, and I don’t have all the answers in the world,” Clark shared. “This is something new to me … That’s something I’m excited for.”
