Manu Ginobili is his countries main hope for a medal in the Men’s basketball event at this years Summer Olympics, beginning in a couple weeks.  One person who will definitely be cheering her husband on is, Marianela Orono, Manu’s wife and fellow Argentine.

Time Together

Manu and Marianela were married way back in July of 2004 in Bahia Blanca, Argentina.  That summer is one for Manu and Marianela to remember.  Not only did Ginobili get married to the love of his life, but he also won the gold medal at the 2004 Olympics with team Argentina and picked up a huge $52 million contract.  Can Ginobili have another great summer with a gold medal 8 years later?

Six years later in 2010 Marianela gave birth to their twin boys, Nicola and Dante.

Ginobili is coming off of a very strong season for the San Antonio Spurs that saw the Spurs lose in the Conference Finals after dominating the latter part of the NBA season and beginning of the playoffs.  He now takes his talents to the Argentina squad as they face off against the superstars of the USA and try for the gold medal in Men’s Basketball.  You can bet on the Summer Olympics online and take a chance on Ginobili taking the reigns and leading the Argentines to victory AGAIN, with the support of wife Marianela.

Interesting Details

Everybody has heard of Adriana Lima, probably even moreso than her husband, Marko Jaric.

Time Together

Lima and Jaric got married on Valentines day in 2009, in a private ceremony in Jackson, Wyoming.  The pair then went on to have their first child, Valentina, on in November of the same year.  Valentina was born just 34 weeks into the pregnancy because Adriana suffered from preeclampsia.  Valentina was born at just 4.4 lbs but was healthy.  Adriana Lima is a devout catholic, who attends church every weekend.  Back in 2006, when Lima was 25 she told GQ magazine that she was a virgin.


Career

Adriana Lima is best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret.  She first modeled for the company in 1999 and has become one of the most popular Victoria Secret models in the history of the company.  In 2007 Lima was ranked 7th in FHM’s 100 sexiest women list, was dubbed the “hottest girl on the planet” at the Spike TV Guys’ Choice Awards and voted into #53 on Maxim’s hot 100 list.  In 2007 she also ranked #4 on FHM’s “Sexiest Women in the World” list.  In 2008 Lima ranked #1 on Models.com for the sexiest models in the world list.

Charity Work

Lima is well known for her charity work around the world.  She often volunteers with an orphanage called Caminhos da Luz in Salvador, where she helps with construction and buying clothes for the children.  One of the main photographers for Victoria Secret was quoted as saying that Adriana Lima will do any charity work that is asked of her.

It will be interesting to see if Marko Jaric returns to the NBA in the upcoming season or remains in Europe.  If you are an NBA fan, I suggest you check out this NBA betting site.
