Swintayla Marie Cash Canal
On September 22, 1979, Swintayla Marie "Swin" Cash Canal was born in Pittsburgh. Her mother, Cynthia raised Swin, her two brothers, and one sister. In high school, Swin tried a hand at just about every kind of activity. She cheered, played baseball, and ran track, but found her true passion in drama and school plays. Despite demonstrating a variety of talents, Swin’s basketball skills took center stage, as she won MVP of the WBCA High School All-America Game.
Like lots of legit lady ballers, her next stop was UConn. Swin won two championships as a Huskie, in 2000 and 2002. Swin helped the Huskies finish with an astounding record of 39-0 in 2002 and finished as an All American. Next, she was drafted by the Detroit Shock. Swin wasted no time, as she led the Shock on to win the 2003 WNBA Championship. That same year, she helped lead the women’s basketball team to a gold medal for the US. In 2008, Swin was traded to the Seattle Storm. She helped the Storm snag their second Championship in 2010. She won gold that year, too, and again in 2012. After a long, successful career, Swin retired in 2016.
Swin’s style of play is as versatile as she was in high school. Known for her out-of-this-world scoring ability and dominant presence on the boards, Swin also played lockdown defense and demonstrated dirty handles. In all facets, she is a baller. It’s only fitting that Swin be among Sports Illustrated Fashionable 50. She describes her style as “versatile”, with favorite designers including: Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo, and Sam Edelman. While for clothes, she likes Ted Baker, Helmut Lang, Robert Rodriguez, and J Brand Jeans.
