Olympic Couples Strike Gold

Our Favourite GB Olympic Couples

We all love a LOVE STORY

Laura Trott and Jason Kenny

The ultimate golden couple, with five golds between them, made their relationship public while watching beach volleyball with David Beckham at London 2012. It prompted one observer to say British Cycling had thought of everything to produce champions. The relationship between the two began in the build-up to London 2012, with Kenny about to come out of Chris Hoy's muscled shadow at his second Olympics and Trott about to experience her first
They are engaged.

Kate Richardson-Walsh and Helen Richardson-Walsh (hockey)

The pair tied the knot in 2013, the year after winning bronze in the London Olympics, and became the first married gay couple to compete at the Games. This is skipper Kate, 36, and 34-year-old Helen’s fourth Olympics together.

Chris Adcock and Abby Adcock (badminton)

The Adcock's, one of the favourites for gold in the mixed doubles, married in 2013 and it has proven to be a match made in heaven. They won the first tournament they competed in on returning from honeymoon and went on to take gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014

Siobhan O'Conner & Chris Hebborn-Walker

The Bath-based swimmers are a long-time couple. Walker-Hebborn is the tattooed north Londoner and O’Connor was born in Bath and raised in Keynsham, south of Bristol. She made her Olympic debut at London 2012,
aged 16.
