Your Indiana Fever: 2012 WNBA World Champions

Congratulations are in order, friends. The Indiana Fever closed out the 2012 WNBA Championship, defeating the Minnesota Lynx 87-78 on Sunday night to win the 5-game series 3-1. Tamika Catchings adds WNBA Champion and Finals MVP to a laundry list of accomplishments, among those including 3-time Olympic gold medalist and NCAA Champion. The former Tennessee Volunteer has struggled through injuries, particularly during the postseason portions of her career, so it was especially sweet for the 33-year old to finally reach the pinnacle of professional sports and joins a short list of athletes to win championships as a collegiate, an Olympian, and a professional athlete. Little known fact, Tamika Catchings is the first basketball player to record a quintuple double. A celebration is planned for Tuesday, October 22nd, at noon downtown Indianapolis. Cheers, ladies!
