Dynamic Duos: The 10 Coolest Twin Siblings in Sports (with Video)
Siblings can get on a person's nerves sometimes. But in many everyday cases, there are siblings that work with each other.
Such is the case with several athletes. No matter how annoying they can get at times, sometimes they are your partner in crime.
B/R would like to take a look at some of the oddest and talented twin siblings in sports.
10. Frank and Ronald De Boer
Frank and Ronald De Boer are recognized more in Europe as they were soccer stars in their prime.
Frank played for FC Barcelona and was part of the Dutch National Team. He was at the core of four Dutch runs for the World Cup.
Ronald De Boer is older by ten minutes. He also plays professional soccer in Europe and played on the 1998 Dutch National Team, that finished a respectable fourth.
9. Jose and Ozzie Canseco
Jose Canseco's name may be sin to say to some teams in the Major Leagues, but his brother and he are very interesting.
In fact—they are completely identical. In Canseco's book, "Juiced," he notes that the only way to tell them apart is through Jose's birthmark on his hand.
Jose rocked 422* home-runs in 17 seasons in the Major Leagues. Ozzie only played 38 games in the Major Leagues.
The two are still very close as they even had a short stint as teammates in Oakland and also with an independent team in Newark.

8. The Bella Twins
It is debatable whether the Bella Twins from WWE should be on the list, since some may not consider the WWE a sport.
The Bella Twins have been around for quite some time and have been pretty successful.
Before making the WWE, they were at the center of a Pepsi advertisement for the FIFA World Cup. They failed to make the cut for the WWE originally.
Now, they are in video games, Slim Jim commercials, and are the hottest duo in the WWE.
The Bella Twins have a nice future ahead for them.
7. Henrik and Joel Lundqvist
Henrik Lundqvist is one of the NHL's most successful goal keepers. Just recently, the Rangers' goaltender received a text in January stating that he better come to work prepared to go all out due to the fact that the other team had a good scorer.
The two brothers are very close and have made an impact in the NHL. Please watch this interview with the two brothers for more info on them:
6. Travis and David Wear
The Wear Twins have sparked headlines recently with their decisions to leave the University of North Carolina to go to UCLA.
The two twins were near the top of their recruiting class, and were able to get plenty of time to play under Roy Williams. They are very talented and could have UCLA back near the top of the college basketball world, if UCLA can pull off some more big moves.
How talented are they? Watch.
5. Brook and Robin Lopez
Brook Lopez is one of the stars of the New Jersey Nets. He could be one of the key ingredients that the team's new Russian owner is hoping can reel in LeBron James.
But the Suns have a Lopez too.
Brook and Robin Lopez are twin brothers in the NBA that went to Stanford and were drafted very high.
The two are fixtures on their teams and have had very nice careers so far. There was even a play where Robin Lopez dunked on his brother. I guess you can call that brotherly love.
Here is their mixtape from their days at Stanford.
4. Ronde and Tiki Barber
Ronde and Tiki Barber may be two of the most successful twins to have graced a football field.
Both were Pro Bowl selections at some point in their career.
Tiki Barber was a running back for the New York Giants. He was one of the best in franchise history and left a big hole to fill after he left.
Since then, the Giants have moved on and won a Super Bowl. He set records at the University of Virginia and was a second-team All American.
Rodne is just as successful. He is a defensive back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers . He is a five-time Pro Bowler. He was selected to the All-Decade Team recently.
The two brothers starred in a funny commercial for Visa a few years ago.
3. Claire and Anne Recht
Meet the World's Tallest Twin Siblings.
The two Recht sisters are stars of American University's volleyball team and have started to put people in seats at matches. The two sisters are famous on campus and have become world renowned for their record.
They told Sports Illustrated that they are usually addressed as "Are you one of the tall twins?" whether it be at at campus cafeteria or in an elevator.
Just like siblings they don't room together at American due to the fact that they would kill each other.
Oh the sibling love!
2. Mike and Bob Bryan
Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan are the most entertaining doubles tennis players to watch. They do everything alike. They rose to higher fame after being featured on 60 minutes.
Bob Bryan has been called the more talented of the two as he was called "one of the world's top young tennis players" by several tennis scouts.
Like the Lopez brothers these two also attended Stanford, but left after two years to go pro.
Since then they have been ranked very high in doubles on a global scale.
As the 60 minutes interview below will note, Bob is left-handed and Mike is right-handed. Mike is an inch shorter than his brother. Those are just a few ways to tell them apart.
Good luck doing that when they are constantly moving on the court.
1. Bia and Bianca Feres
Brazil has been home to some of the hottest women in the universe.
They have an amazing soccer team that could make a deep run in the World Cup. After the World Cup is over all eyes should go back to Bia and Bianca Feres.
Don't know who they are?
They are Olympic swimmers for Brazil. It is amazing how two incredibly hot sisters like that succeed at such a high level without having fame and modeling offers distract them.
They might not be as successful as Bob and Mike Bryan, but they are incredibly talented and sexy. Put those two together and you have some of the best genes in the world. That is the case with Bia and Bianca Feres.
Who wouldn't want to watch them swim?
The following is a video of them in action. The video is in Portuguese, but still who wouldn't want to watch them?
