I wouldn't call my dad famous, but he was a two-time Olympian for Thailand in basketball (Rome and Tokyo). Team Thailand played against Team USA and Jerry West in 1960. Thailand won the consolation bracket that year. So, maybe Tammy counts? If she goes to Athens, she will be a three-time Olympian.

maggie maleevas father was a great sportstar: georg maleev. he was an icehockey-player and loved basketball, too.

I think the only parent who is a famous sport-star, in the U.S., is Alex's father. Her dad is still famous and is considered to be one of the best basketball players ever.
