Couple goals right there! 😍
Becoming a professional athlete is no small achievement, so when two professional athletes date, they become the ultimate definition of a power couple.
With the Tokyo Olympics taking centre stage in the sporting world, and with many athletes posting regularly to their personal social media pages, it has given fans a peek inside their personal lives.
Stéphanie Labbé and Georgia Simmerling
Olympic cyclist and skier Georgia Simmerling has found a keeper. That's right — she's been dating Canadian soccer goaltender Stéphanie Labbé for the past four years. They spent some time in the Olympic village in Tokyo together and Labbé posted a cheeky message on Instagram: "They aren't diamond but these rings will do for now."
Andre De Grasse and Nia Ali
Olympic medals are in the family for Canadian sprinter Andre De Grasse and his wife, Nia Ali. De Grasse won a gold and bronze medal in the men's 200-metre final and 100-metre final, respectively. In the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Ali won silver in the 100-metre hurdles event.
