A trailblazer by many accounts, Brittney Griner made headlines when she came out ahead WNBA draft (where she was the number 1 pick).

Then, with the Phoenix Mercury she broke the WNBA dunk record, and was named the league’s defensive player of the year. Also, with her phenomenal talent she also won over fans when she helped take the Phoenix Mercury to a championship title in September.

As for other records she became the first out athlete to get a Nike campaign, showing that no, being gay does not harm your marketing potential.

Furthermore, Griner also got engaged to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson in August, which may not have set any records but it was certainly adorable.

All of this is why Outsports named the University of Baylor graduate the female athlete of the year.
