Sports Power Couples: Five Sports Couples Who Made the Love Last
When it comes to sports stars, it seems like they couple up and then uncouple at the speed of light. Sometimes, on some very rare occasions, the love sticks and a couple rockets itself to the heights of sports power couples.
Here's a look at some of the sports superstars who have found a way to make the love last:
Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf: They are two of tennis' greatest stars, but off the court it was a L-O-V-E for Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. He was the golden boy of tennis with eight Grand Slam titles and an Olympic Gold Medal. She is considered to be one of the best female tennis players in the history of the game. The tennis power couple married in October 2001 and have two children.
Maria Sharapova and Sasha Vujacic: He is a two-time NBA Champion. She is one of the biggest tennis stars on the courts today. The couple has been dating since 2009 and has been engaged since October 2010.
Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra: They may be retired, but once upon a time they were the golden stars of their individual sports. She was the star of the U.S. Women's soccer team and has a World Cup and an Olympic gold medal to her credit. He was a six-time MLB All-Star best known for his years with the Boston Red Sox. These days, they are keeping busy raising their 4-year-old twin daughters, Grace and Ava.
Misty May-Treanor and Matt Treanor: It was the best of the summertime stories when the baseball player fell for the beach volleyball player in 2004. He currently plays catcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. She is one half of the greatest beach volleyball teams of all time, alongside her partner, Kerri Walsh. They have been married since 2004.
Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton: They are a couple made in sports heaven! The professional volleyball player/model found her match when she met the Hawaiian big-wave surfer. They have two daughters, Reece Viola Hamilton and Brody Jo Hamilton.
