    Best I can do is a former HockeyRoos player, Karen Marsden. Hey, she won a Gold Medal!

    Sachin Tendulkar.

    Now you will ask how. Well, he is my father's father's mother's third son's second son's only son.

    Biggest claim to fame: Related to Don Bradman.
    2nd biggest: Related to the 7 consecutive times Wimbledon doubles champions in the 1890's.

    Those are the only ones though.
