Having a sister only a year younger than me meant that, growing up, if my sister was playing against me, I always tended to run a little faster, hit the ball a little quicker, or focus a little harder. There's nothing like a sibling to give you that extra competitive edge. Of course, I couldn't let my younger sister beat me. Here are some sports peoples that allowed their sibling rivalry to boost them right up into sports history, and celebrity stardom.
