From the Velodrome to New Zealand: Sports nine best power couples

Ben Darvill

Throughout sporting history, there has been no end of outstanding talent, but what makes a sporting story even more incredible is when one successful sports person is in a relationship with another.

Every single one of these relationships just serves to make the aspiring sports star in each of us feel bad about not making it to a professional standard twice over, cheers guys!

They do say that similar people are attracted to one another and that may explain why so many sports personalities choose a partner that is also a very talented person. With this in mind we have compiled our nine favourite sports power couples:

Well if there was ever a sporting pageant of power this would be it. Medals, trophies and victories, these couples really do prove that it is possible to have two mega stars in one household.

The winners due to their overall success must be Jason Kenny and Laura Trott with the pair winning about as many gold medals as we have on the WII Sports Olympic games. All we can say is if any of them have kids, they have an awful lot to live up to, good luck to them!
