Steven, Diana Lopez return to Olympics

Share This Story



Diana and Steven Lopez will return to the Olympics after winning their bouts at the taekwondo trials, but they'll be without their brother, Mark, who lost a close fight to Terrence Jennings.

In 2008, the Lopezes became the first trio of siblings to represent the United States at the Olympics since three brothers made it in gymnastics in 1904.

All three Lopezes won medals in Beijing and were hoping for a repeat.

But Mark fell 1-0 to Jennings in Saturday's last match.

Steven defeated TJ Curry 4-3 and will be looking to add to gold medals he won in 2000 and 2004 and a bronze from 2008.

Diana Lopez defeated Danielle Holmquist 3-1 and is going to her second Olympics. She won bronze in 2008.
