The WNBA Olympic break wasn’t necessarily time off for players, as the work never truly stops. Most athletes spent their time working out and training in preparation of the final stretch of the season.
Besides the on-court activities and time spent in the gym, players also bonded with each other through team dinners, community service, charity events, and group outings.
Here are the best social media posts displaying everything from basketball clinics to practices, USA Olympic viewing parties to beach selfies, and everything in between.
