This June of 2016 marked the Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve's third trip to Whitehouse in five years, thanks to the courtesy of third championship triumph with Lynx. It will be their last trip with President Obama in the White House since his second term as president ends in 2016.

“I think it’s fair to say this team is a powerhouse,” Obama showered praises on the WNBA giants.

“Today these women and women across the WNBA are setting their own example for girls that are growing up today,” President Obama said. “As Maya says, We’re not super rich like the guys, but money is not everything when you’re talking about dynasties and legacies and inspiring young women and men and opening people’s minds.”

“Money is useful, too, and I am for equal pay for equal work,” Obama said to the mass audience at the Whitehouse.

Before his speech, Obama gave a high five to Cheryl Reeve’s son Oliver, who had started crying since the moment he entered the room. The particular high-five will be going down as one of the best moment of Oliver's life.

The decision has paid off with Cheryl leading our team to back-to-back WNBA Finals appearances, including its first championship in 2011, and the best record in the league since being hired. We are extremely happy to continue the relationship and look forward to even better things in the future.”

“I’m just as excited today as I was the day that Roger and Mr. Taylor hired me to be the head coach of the Minnesota Lynx,” said Reeve back in 2012. “We have a great thing going here in Minnesota – great players, great staff and great fans – and I’m very grateful to be in this situation.”
