Track and field star Jasmine Camacho-Quinn and her brother, Philadelphia Eagle Robert Quinn, have something in common: They're both in pursuit of rings.

For Camacho-Quinn, that would be Olympic rings — she won a gold medal in 2020 Tokyo — and now, big brother Quinn is going after a Super Bowl ring when his team faces up against the Kansas City Chiefs in Glendale, Arizona Feb. 12.

Camacho-Quinn, 26, clearly couldn't be prouder: She took to Twitter following the Eagles' domination of the NFC Championship game Jan. 29 to shout out her family's latest accomplishment.

"My parents witness me in the Olympics," she wrote. "And now my brother in the Super Bowl in a couple weeks!"

She added a cheeky "LFG!!!" as punctuation.

Fans flocked to offer up congratulations, with one begging "Can we get a #flyeaglesfly?"

Camacho-Quinn retweeted that, noting playfully, "This is the only time I'll do this."

Camacho-Quinn, whose first-place finish for the women's 100-meter hurdles in 2021 distinguished her as giving Puerto Rico its second-ever Olympic gold medal, has also been celebrated by her older sibling for doing the family proud.

"I talked to her 2x this morning. Still had the gold medal around her neck. I'm still in disbelief," Quinn, 32, told reporters in 2021, according to the Chicago Tribune. "That's my baby sister and she's an Olympian — I don't know man. I can brag about that."

Quinn's NFL team at the time, the Chicago Bears, also tweeted out their support of the Olympic champion's victory.

Quinn, who started out his NFL career with the St. Louis Rams, spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and the Bears before being traded to Philadelphia in 2022. He was placed on injured reserve in December but cleared to play last month.
