We’ve simply always been impressed with DiDi Richards. Her attitude, her on-court fire, her skill as a professional basketball player—they all combine to make for one always inspiring person in Richards.
Her latest on-court photos are no exception. The professional athlete moved to Sydney, Australia over the summer to continue her basketball career with the Sydney Flames, a team that is part of Australia’s Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL).
Ever since the season started in November, Richards has been sharing some fierce photos from her impressive on-court performances. Thus far, the 24-year-old has really shined on her new squad Down Under.
Her latest Instagram post is only further evidence of this. Recently, she shared a handful of photos to her page from a recent game against Southside. Though they lost 79-73, Richards looked powerful on the court.
“growing in grace 🙏🏾,” she captioned the carousel, which—in typical fashion for the pro athlete—included a slide with inspirational words interspersed with the photos of her on the court.
“My girl 🤌💗,” her teammate Cayla George wrote in the comments.
“Go Flames!🔥,” another follower exclaimed.
“You are still my fav player 😍🔥👏,” one complimented the athlete.
There is no doubt in our minds: she’s an asset to the Australian league. Richards and the Flames are currently 9-8 in league play, coming in at No. 5 in the current rankings. They will be back on the court on Friday, Jan. 19 against the UC Capitals.
