Seattle Storm’s Jewell Loyd selected for 2024 Olympics

Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd will be joining the 2024 USA Basketball Women’s National Team for the Olympic Games in Paris.

Jewell Loyd is mid-jump, arms in the air about to launch a basketball from beneath the net. Her toes are barely balanced on the court, and she's sporting the red, white, and blue USA uniform from the USA Women's National Team during her 2022 performance in Sydney, Australia.

Jewell Loyd played for the USA Women’s National Team in 2020 in Tokyo, 2022 in Sydney, and will be joining for another round in 2024 in Paris.
