These Olympic Athletes Are Sister Goals

(upbeat music) (hockey sticks hitting) – [Marissa] When we were younger, I never thought I looked
any different than her. – [Hannah] And we didn’t understand why people would be like,
“Are you actually sisters?” We were like, “Yeah, obviously.” (upbeat music) (sticks hitting puck) – My name’s Hannah Brandt,
and I play for Team USA. – My name’s Marissa Brandt, and
I play for Team South Korea. – And we’re sisters. – [Marissa] I was born
in Seoul, South Korea, and I was adopted when
I was four months old. I flew on a plane to the States and that’s where I met my parents. I started playing hockey when I was eight. And you started… – I started when I was
about five years old. – [Marissa] We did everything
together growing up, so really I chose hockey just
to be able to be with her, but as I got older, I really
learned to love this sport. – [Hannah] We’ve played
together through high school and then we went our
separate ways for college. When we’re on opposite ends of the world. – [Marissa] Everyday we
talk and text and ask about how each other’s days
went and games and whatnot so yeah, I mean being so far
away we stay connected somehow. (crowd cheers) – [Hannah] I think it’s a super cool thing that we’re both going to the Olympics, playing for different teams and in the same sport I don’t
know how common that is so I think it makes it that
much more special for us but I think for our family and friends, that they have two teams to root for. Just so happy to be able to
continue to play the sport I love and be able to go to
the Olympics with this one. (happy music) – [Marissa] Hockey has
shaped and influenced both of our lives growing up so I
can’t imagine a better reason to be able to go back to my
home country, through hockey. – [Hannah] For me going to
the Olympics has kinda always been a dream of mine and then to be able to watch my sister do the same thing and to be able to go
through this experience with her is just a dream come true. (happy music)
