They define #relationshipgoals every single day of the year. Then there is the world of power couples in sports.

There are a countless number of these couples, but there are four that have created and exceeded power couples in sports. Ever feeling like you need a little motivation or a heart warming story, these are made for it.
Zach and Julie Etrz
Zach and Julie made hearts melt a few years back a video went viral when Julia found out that Zach would be going to the Super Bowl directly after scoring the final goal for the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. As she squealed “are they really going?” her teammates crowded around her as she teared up at the Eagle’s making it to the big game. The two have continued to cheer and support each other as Zach went on to win the Super Bowl and a year later Julia was part of the winning world cup USWNT team.
Casey Jennings and Keri Walsh-Jennings
Casey and Keri were both pursuing beach volleyball careers and then achieved those careers together. Keri became one of the household names in beach volleyball and won gold for team USA in four consecutive Olympics. The power in this couple is their openness and sincerity in the struggles they faced throughout their marriage. Keri even noted that her biggest accomplishment wasn’t winning a gold medal but saving her marriage for herself and her kids. They are also leading a trend of allowing their children to play multiple sports instead of just focusing on one.
Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger
Before getting married these two had a lot to celebrate; they won the Fifa 2019 World Cup together. Ashlyn is the goalkeeping on the team while Ali runs right in front of her as a defender. After keeping their relationship a secret they entered the tournament officially engaged and continued to make heart swoon as they wed soon after in Miami. Ashlyn also caught eyes on her stories all of social media documenting their win and continues to capture hearts with her new wife. They aren’t cheering each other on from the stands, but work together to make a dream team on and off the field.
