PSFK Coverage Of The 2012 London Olympics

The London 2012 Olympics will feature a number of pairs of siblings competing for the US Olympic Team. Doubles partners Bob and Mike Bryan, Taekwondo athletes Diana and Steven Lopez, Sailers Zach and Paige Railey, rowers Ross and Grant James, field hockey players Katie and Julia Reinprecht, tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, and swimmers Haley and Alyssa Anderson.

Two siblings not competing together in the Olympics? Brothers┬áSteven and Jeffrey Gluckstein, who had to compete against each other for the lone trampoline spot on the U.S. Men’s Gymnastics team. Steven, 22, beat out younger brother and training partner Jeffrey, 19, saying, ‘In 2008, I said 2012 is going to be my year. I knew deep down 2016 was [Jeff's] year.’

See the gallery of the siblings below.
