Top 10 Power Couples in Sports

There are many great athletes around the world. They compete in various sports and in various disciplines. Most athletes have been playing sports since their childhood. They also compete against other great athletes in their sports. Among the greatest athletes, the top athletes often emerge and become the best in their sport. They also happen to enjoy fame and are often recognized on the street. If their sport is one of the major sports they stand to make alot of money.

Outside of their career, they often have other interests. Interests such as charities, businesses, movies, etc... One of the biggest interests is their personal and romantic life. Sometimes it can get ridiculous as the public and/or media seem to become fixated on one's personal life, more-so than how they fare in their profession. When two famous athletes start dating each other, it's the talk of the town. The athletes start dating either fellow athletes in their sport or athletes from another sport. Some of the athletes eventually marry or end up in a long term relationship with another athlete. The well known and famous athletes start dating models, actors, actresses and or other famous athletes. This can also lead to marriage or long term relationships.
