Gymnasts Idol Turns out to be Her Sister

Here’s a “blast from the past” Olympics story…

 

Remember in the 1998 movie, The Parent Trap, where the two girls found out they were sisters?

 

Well, this happened at the Olympics! Tru Biz!!!

 

On one episode of TLC's "Body Bizarre," Jen Bricker, professional acrobat and aerialist, explained her obsession with the Olympian, Dominique Moceanu.

 

Bricker always felt a strong connection to Moceanu. Then, she noticed similarities between the two of them. Bricker was small, and the Olympian was small. And she also knew they were both Romanian.

 

With the help of an investigator, Bricker’s sister is indeed Moceanu!

 

Their father left Bricker up for adoption once he learned about her disability. He was worried about the finances of raising a child with special needs, nervous of ruining Moceanu's gymnastics future.

 

Despite the circumstances- how cool is that?


What if you found a secret sibling somewhere in the world?!
