Sibling’s have a special connection. I cannot imagine what it would be like to play with, or against, a sibling in a professional sport. In honor of Siblings Day, these are some of my favorite siblings in sports right now.
Peyton and Eli Manning
The Manning brothers have won 3 combined Super Bowls. Combined, they have also made 15 pro bowl appearances. Although they compete against each other, they always seem to be very supportive of each other. They can even be spotted working out at the same place in the off season.
They have also shown they have a great sense of humor…
Marc and Pau Gasol
The Gasol brothers have combined to have 5 All-Star game appearances in the NBA. They have also come together to help Spain win two silver medals in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
Venus and Serena Williams
For almost 15 years (Venus won 2 Grand Slams in 1999), the William sisters have dominated in women’s tennis. They have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles together and 3 Olympic gold medals in women’s doubles. They have also won a combined 22 Grand Slam singles titles.
B.J. and Justin Upton
Bob and Mike Bryan
The Bryan brothers have won 13 Grand Slam doubles titles together. They also won the gold medal together in the 2012 Olympics. These twins even play music in a band together.
Until next time,
