WPS Arianna and Angeline Bergner are double trouble on the sand, the identical twin sisters also happen to be teammates on the sand for the Windermere Prep beach volleyball team.
In the world of team sports, the connections that athletes have between one another is often one of the biggest aspects to finding success.
It’s difficult to win as a team if you can’t get along, and the better you know your teammates the better off you’ll be. But what happens if your lone teammate is a relative or — more specifically — your identical twin sister?
That’s the case for Arianna and Angeline Bergner, who do everything as a pair — including playing alongside one another for the Windermere Prep beach volleyball team.
Like many identical twins they finish each other’s sentences, they are empathic to one another and their bond is deep, so it’s no surprise that they don’t have any issue when it comes to playing together on the same team.
“We don’t separate — we’ve been by each other’s side our whole lives, so it wasn’t really different stepping on the court with her,” Arianna said. “It was just a matter of being mature about it if we messed up.”
“We want to push each other and support each other,” said Angeline. “I feel like it’s a lot easier playing with your twin sister because you know what she wants, you know what you’re (expected) to do. You know exactly what kind of set she wants and where she wants to hit it. I just know what she wants, because we’ve played together for three years.”
