Delle Donne’s ‘strength’ comes from her sister Lizzie

Elena Delle Donne shares her special bond with her older sister Lizzie.


It’s hard sometimes for words to truly express the connection an individual shares with their sibling, and how truly meaningful it is. For Chicago Sky All-Star, Elena Delle Donne, the bond she shares with her sister Lizzie is a very unique one – one that connects her with the wind.

The relationship Delle Donne shares with her older sister is solely through communication, as Lizzie was born severely handicapped, not being able to see, hear, or speak.

Check out this special video by Gatorade, where Delle Donne shares her connection with Lizzie, and how the wind reminds her of that unique bond.
