Ok.  I take amazinglatinoamericafan post that the twins are Natalie & Nadiya, and I found this couple of things:

First:

SENEWIRATNE ­ SQUADRON LEADER ELROY SENEWIRATNE   USP (Retd S.L.A.F.) Safe in the Arms of Jesus. Dearly beloved husband of late Stella, precious father of Ralston (Canada), Ingrid (Sri Lankan Air Lines) and Bernadine (U.S.A.), father-in-law of Shelagh, Weerasiri and Andy, loving brother of Maureen, Godfrey, Ronald and Mignon, dearly loved papa of Tania, Nientara, Natalie, Nadiya and Manoj.

As we know this:

They are Nadine and Natalie from New York City.  They are twin sisters born in New York City.  But their family is from Sri Lanka and they were raised there.  They moved back to NYC when they were in their teens.  One is attending college to become a physical therapist and the other works for a non-profit organization with ties to Sri Lanka.

I focused on Bernardine Serewiratne, and I discovered this:

Aunty Bernie’s Journal

December 13th 2006 – Christmas Cheer
It was a novel experience at Bridge2Peace.

The first Christmas celebration ever experienced not just by the children but by the whole village. The parents requested that we visit little hamlets where the elders could enjoy this moment. ‘Santa Claus’ had never ever visited the village. ‘Viro’ the clown was definitely a first time too. Santa’s identity remains a secret !
santa_and-kids


December 28th 2006 – A day to remember

Even though the school was officially closed, a visit by my daughter Nientara, stirred the village into action. The camaraderie was obvious as they greeted her, surprising us all with a full show of all the students’ parents and elders of the village.
It was a joyful occasion as my husband, twin daughters Nadiya and Natalie, Nientara’s colleagues Charlie Munford and Zuika Kriegar watched in awe as the once overgrown site they had prepared physically, now hummed with happy children. We shared a typical day and many unfolding phenomena ! I watched the active involvement of my family with great pride. It was a moment locked in my memory of true motherhood bliss !


Ms. Anderson (Serewitnare is her single las name) is the founder and directress of Bridge2Peace, an USA charitable organization who works in Sri Lanka.
I also found a small picture of Ms. Anderson's daughter; is dated on 2006, but you can see the resemblance.  I guess I found the identity of the twins.

My bad!   So Sorry!

I got the name wrong.   Now I remember, Nadiya it is.    :tup:

I think the team of blond girls might be these 2 girls from Auburn University. Both of them have studied Education there.

1. Caitlin King



Who, I think, looks a lot like the taller girl from this picture:



She's 25, an education student and a soccer player at Auburn Tigers. You can find some information about that in the following links:

http://www.auburntigers.com/sports/w-soccer/mtt/king_caitlin00.html
http://www.auburntigers.com/sports/w-soccer/spec-rel/110607aab.html

2. Brittany Fletcher



She's 24, also an education student at Auburn University and a pageant queen. She was among the contestants of Miss Illinois USA 2011, as you can see on this link:

http://www.missillinoisusa.com/illinois_meetcontestants_11.html


I guess it would make sense that they were casted because they are best friends but, at the same time, are so different, just like Elliott and Andrew last season. 

Now, since we've always thought the relationship on this team was siblings, we should also consider Caitlin's sisters, Julie and Meghan, as possible options. What do you think?

Well, WRP has a crush on pageant queens:  Dustin, Kandice, Mallory, Caite for example.  It wouldn't be a surprise that they did it again this season.

I forgot Kelly (TAR7)  :groan:.

Natalie & Nadiya are indeed 26 year old twins from NY! They went to Fordham University together.

Here is Nadiya's LinkedIn page, detailing the amazing work she does for The Reach Foundation in NY.

Natalie's is here, and explains that she is part of the sales team at the Jones apparel group.

In this Leg's ROADBLOCK:

Teams need to blow up some balloons for the children while they are riding on top of Odong-Odong..

The source (DP) apologize from taking this pic from far away, because there is a "Restricted Area - no Camera or Video Allowed" warning in front of him

The girl who are doing this Roadblock was Kate, her teammate shouted "Come on Kate! You can do it!!  Come on Kate keep pushing..!! Another team is Leaving..!!"  and they are sweating like crazy...  :lol:

go find Kate guys..!!  :hoot: :hoot:





I think Alenaveda is correct with the ID of the 2 blonds.  zouly, we found "kate"!!

 Trying to locate "Abby" now. Could possibly be spelled "Abbie."  Closest connection I'm finding in a Google search for a "Ryan Danz" and an Abby is an "Abbie Ginsberg," but I'm not confident that it's the right "Abby" ... BUT there's a dance teacher named Abbie Ginsberg from Carlsbad who looks like her! Could just be the blonde hair though! Maybe someone with better facial recognition can help with identification!

I think you're right! Her eyes and eyebrows especially match.

No guys, this is not my ID.  It's Al one.  He has the full credit.  I only said that WRP has a crush on pageants queens, as Brittany Fletcher.  :tup:

About Ryan Danz:

He's a Jiu Jitsu and martial arts enthusiast. He's, apparently, with Gracie Barra Encinitas, a Jiu Jitsu academy. Here's a video of him fighting and wining a gold medal. FOR THE LAST 15 SECONDS OR SO, you can see his face, pretty similar to the one on the pictures we have of the racer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkQMgbKVou4


It's a pity he wears that garnment, since I was expecting to find anything that shows his tatoo in the arm, to be absolutely sure it's him.

He's also mentioned on the Grappling X website as a bronze medal winner in a match, on the following link:

http://grapplingx.com/events/gi-nogi/450

I won't be able to dig any deeper for the next 9 hours, guys (aka, tons of work!), so do your magic!

Here's a comparison between Reta's pic at Shangai and a photo (cropped from a bigger one for obvious reasons) of Ryan Danz.  We've got a match on his right arm tatoo, the hair cut and the beard.

I'm just gonna throw this out there. Something has been telling me or shorter guy on the green team could be a horse jockey. I have no evidence for it, but it doesn't hurt to take a look in that direction.

I felt sure she wasn't his daughter, based on how she looked a little older. Not as old as him MAYBE but still not his daughter
