    Together, Venus and Serena won their second women's doubles at the Beijing 2008 Games.

    Venus and Serena Williamshave arrived in Rio de Janeiro.

    The two-time defending Olympic women's doubles gold medalists got their accreditations processed after flying in Wednesday morning. The sisters have a combined eight golds between them, four apiece. Each has a singles gold, and they teamed up for doubles gold in 2000, 2008 and 2012.

    Serena had a Harry Potter book with her for her flight. Venus tried to stifle a few yawns, and there was no fanfare even for superstars like them.

    After being processed, the sisters headed off to get their luggage — just like everyone else.
