Carissa Moore turns heads with rare air reverse
The 4x WSL champion seems primed heading into Tokyo.
On Wednesday, a Kentucky grand jury indicted a single police officer with three counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the shooting of Breonna Taylor, who was killed at home by police in March.
Athletes have demanded for months that all three officers involved be arrested. The WNBA dedicated its season to Taylor and has made her name and story a prominent fixture of its 2020 campaign. Players wore jerseys with Taylor’s name on the back, as well as warm-up shirts that said “Say Her Name.”
The outcry on Wednesday in reaction to the grand jury’s decision was both swift and decisive.

Breonna, you are one of the reasons why I opted out and, whether the court system thinks they gave us justice or not, we will make sure everyone knows your name and continue to tell your story. Sorry this system failed you. #sayhername #breonnataylor pic.twitter.com/FOR5eO0LSj— Renee Montgomery (@ReneeMontgomery) September 23, 2020
We knew the news was not gonna be good when the Louisville police chief declared a state of emergency preemptively. My heart breaks for Tamika Palmer all over again. We will not be silent & accept state sanctioned murder and an extreme lack of accountability time and time again— Layshia Clarendon (@Layshiac) September 23, 2020
Disappointed & disgusted. My heart goes out to Ms Tamika Palmer & the rest of Breonna’s family #JusticeforBreonnaTalyor— Sue Bird (@S10Bird) September 23, 2020
Please vote! Everyone!
He was charged with endangerment for shooting in "other" apartments. STILL, there are no charges and no one being held accountable for Breonna Taylor's MURDER.— Tianna Marie (@t_hawk21) September 23, 2020
Disgusted. Appalled. Ashamed. Heartbroken for Breonna Taylor’s family.— Hilary Knight (@HilaryKnight) September 24, 2020
194 days. ONE HUNDRED NINETY FOUR DAYS. And still no justice for Breonna Taylor and her family. We will continue to fight on her behalf. Her life meant more than stalking someone or reckless burning of trash. #SayHerName #JusticeforBreonnaTalyor— Alysha Clark (@Alysha_Clark) September 24, 2020
My heart is with the family of Breonna Taylor right now. My god. This is devastating and unfortunately not surprising. Black and brown folx in this country deserve so much more. #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeforBreonnaTalyor #DefundPolice #RegisterToVote— Megan Rapinoe (@mPinoe) September 23, 2020

The WNBA devoted the 2020 season to the fight against systemic racism and police brutality with a focus on women victims. Today’s disappointing outcome in the #BreonnaTaylor case shows us that we must continue the fight. @AAPolicyForum #SayHerName pic.twitter.com/WkUsfSfOIQ— WNBA (@WNBA) September 23, 2020
