The Soccer Sisters Alyssa And Gisele Thompson created history in May 2022 when they became the first high school students to strike the deal with Nike. They are the first of their age to ink name, image, and likeness (NIL) deals with legendary sports brands.
This came after their wide success in their national-level soccer games. Daily Mail UK writes that Gisele recently won the CONCACAF championship in the Dominican Republic with her U-17 squad. Meanwhile, elder sister Alyssa bagged gold in the last Santo Domingo match with her U-20 team. The soccer powerhouse, she is also a decorated sprinter. She is also the winner of the Southern Section track and field championships in the Division 3 100-meter race.
Alyssa And Gisele Thompson’s Parents Are Father Mario And Mother Karen
The “real deal” soccer sisters were born to their happy parents, father Mario and mother Karen, in Los Angeles. The two are one year apart in age; thus, the reason behind their friendship rather than sisterhood. Alyssa is a 17-year-old junior in the Harvard-Westlake Upper School, while Gisele is 16 and a sophomore at their LA-based school. They play for their school’s soccer team and are the pride of their peers and the whole school faculty.
The Thompson family starter, father Mario, currently works as the principal for the elementary school in Encino, California. Meanwhile, Gisele and Alyssa’s beloved mother, Karen, is an occupational therapist. Since both Mario and Karen neither played soccer, their soccer-playing daughters are a blessing to them. Top Drawer Soccer writes that Mario is a competitive man, and the family is now devoted to the sport, making it a family pride.
Soccer Thompson Sisters Have Another Sister In Their Family
Aside from them, Alyssa and Gisele Thompson also have a younger sister in their happy family. Zoe is a growing little young lady who is also interested in playing soccer.
Instead, she has already started to play soccer at her school. Little Zoe is younger than her elder sisters but supports them by attending special events for them, showing her uttermost support for them.
