We have all heard about workplace romances. When two people work together, whether in an office setting or on a movie set, romances are likely to blossom between them as they develop an attraction to each other. This often occurs for a number of reason including the fact that the employees share a common interest (i.e. their profession) and they spend an inordinate amount of time with one another. Sharing the same interest allows the couple to bond and develop a friendship that may turn into attraction or romantic feelings.
This not only applies to the boardroom, but also to the swimming pool or the track. Many athletes have started dating over their love for the same sport or sports in general. Olympic athletes dedicate much of their lives to their sport and thus, they spend hours training.
This does not leave much free time for them to date, so it is understandable why many athletes begin to date each other. Just as many celebrities date fellow famous people because they understand their busy schedules, so too Olympic athletes date one another because they understand the rigorous training and dedication that comes with being a world famous athlete.
However, athletes do not always date athletes and they sometimes end up with world famous celebrities. The Olympics and Hollywood often combine to make some of the most gorgeous couples the world has ever seen. For example, the Olympic athlete Ryan Lochte is married to a Playboy Playmate and Michael Phelps is married to a former Miss California!
If you want to know more about these couples and find out who other famous athletes are dating then look no further! We have compiled a list of who the best-known Olympic couples are dating or married to. Many of these couples even have kids who we bet will be future successful athletes!
