Mexico’s ‘Granny Jordan’ becomes viral TikTok basketball star

SAN ESTEBAN ATATLAHUCA, Mexico, Aug 4 (Reuters) – Mexico has a new basketball star: 71-year-old Andrea Garcia Lopez.

Nicknamed “Granny Jordan” by TikTok users, a video showing Lopez lighting up the court in her small remote town of San Esteban Atatlahuca in the southern state of Oaxaca has been viewed over 1 million times since it was uploaded by her grandson.

In the video, Lopez, a local artisan with her gray hair platted in two long braids and sporting a long skirt, fake out an opponent near the basket to make space for a shot which she expertly scores off the backboard.
