Sometimes opposites do attract. Which is the only way to explain the happily ever after story of Serbian basketball player Marko Jarik and Brazilian bombshell Adriana Lima, Victoria's sexiest angel.

Sometimes opposites don't attract. Which is why so many athletes end up dating or marrying fellow professional athletes. They share a common bond that makes their coupling such a natural fit.

That being said, not all athlete and athlete relationships are created equal. More often than not, one half of the pair has had substantially more impressive career achievements than the other.

But there are a few of these couples in which each side is pulling equal weight in terms of athletic ability and career accomplishments. Naturally, I've ranked the top 20 just for you.

Each athlete is given a score of 1-10 based on their careers to date, so it's a combined score of 20.

Just keep in mind that as a non-athlete, your athletic ability would be ranked from 0 to -10 (maybe even -20) on the same scale. Meaning that a 2 or 3 isn't nearly as low as it sounds—so don't freak out.
