People in the same field naturally have similar interests. That’s why it’s common to see professional sportsmen and sportswomen find their other halves doing sports, too! These people were the same, and you probably never realized that they had been dating someone who might become their opponent in the next match.
It’s just irresistibly cute to see how they can be so serious on their training, then just lose focus when their eyes fall on their other half. Another beautiful thing about them is how they are such a powerful representation for the LGTBQ+ community! We want what they have!
USA’s women’s soccer team’s Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird from the basketball team.
Tara Davis and Hunter Woodhall, both from the track and field team! She’s in the women’s category, and he’s in the Paralympic men’s category.
Cycling team duo from England, Laura and Jason Kenny. Married and blessed with one boy!
Megan Jones and Celia Quansah from England’s women’s rugby team.
USA’s women’s track and field Sandi Morris and her lovey-dovey husband from Bermuda men’s long jump, Tyrone Smith.
Morris is a romantic, and you can really tell from how he spoke to CNN about his marriage in 2019, “Our story is very embedded in the Olympics, and Rio is really where we got to know each other, spend time together, and I would go as far as to say we fell in love.”
