No, it's not a joke! Anky van Grunsven and Sjef Janssen got married in Las Vegas following Anky's victory at the 2005 World Cup Finals. "I'll only get married if there is an Elvis," Anky told Sjef

and because there are no limits to Las Vegas, Sunday afternoon Anky and Sjef walked down the isle in one of the many wedding chapels in Vegas and were joined in marriage by Elvis.

Joep and Tineke Bartels were the best man and maid of honour at the wedding, and several more friends were present, including Anky's best friend Fransje Murphy, Dutch journalists Claartje and Vincent Pijpers-van Andel and Dirk Willem Rosie, Gerrit Jan Swinkels, O-judge Stephen Clarke and photographers Dirk Caremans and Jacob Melissen.

Anky and Sjef's song when walking down the isle was "I can't Help Falling in Love with You," sung by the Elvis impersonator/minister.
