    Sporting Daughters of Sporting Fathers

    Not sure if I got the title quite right but I was thinking you often recognise sons of famous or well known Sportsmen following in their fathers footsteps, Kasper Schmeichel for example.

    But I was absolutely stumped for daughters that have followed their well known/ famous parents into sport can any of you guys/girls think of any?
