    An obvious baseball reference no one has mentioned yet: Cecil Fielder and his son Prince. Cecil played for the Toronto Blue Jays and his son, Prince, was always with his Dad at the ball park. Cecil was later traded to Detroit, where Prince is now a huge star, in more way than one, and has certainly eclipsed his father.

    Takahiko Kozuka's family comes to mind; someone posted a link to a documentary about it recently. His grandfather was an early figure in Japanese skating, his father skated in the Olympics, and Takahiko himself is obviously highly accomplished.

    Yuka Sato's family is also an example. Both her parents were Japanese champions and world/Olympic competitors, and all of them are now successful coaches.

    Yuka is indeed one of the best examples of all.
