Borlee brothers send Belgium into 4x400m finals
We’ve seen a lot of talented siblings in sports, but one group that may be going under the radar is the Borlee brothers from Belgium.
The Borlee brothers comprise three-quarters of Belgium’s 4x400m relay team in the Olympics, and they helped the country reach the finals of the event in Rio.
The Borlee brothers include twins Jonathan and Kevin, as well as younger brother Dylan. They also have a sister who — you guessed it — is a sprinter. Her name is Olivia. All four are trained by their father, Jacques, who was a champion sprinter for Belgium.
Despite competing internationally for Belgium, Jonathan and Kevin Borlee may actually sound familiar for some fans. That’s because the two competed for Florida State in track.
In addition to the 4x400m relay, Kevin and Jonathan ran in the 400m and finished 28th and 32nd, respectively. Jonathan also finished 48th in the 200m sprint at the Olympics in Rio.
Here are the twins:

I’m not quite ready to put these three brothers in the same category as Jon, Art and Chandler Jones, but having three sprinters on a country’s 4x400m relay team at the Olympics who are brothers is pretty awesome.
