(CNN) - The competition between two New Jersey brothers is heating up. The men are vying for one spot on the Olympic trampoline team.
Steven and Jeffrey Gluckstein need to jump 30 feet in the air to qualify for the Olympic Games. But that's nothing compared to their greatest challenge - beating each other.
"Sometimes they fight during the training, so it's tough you gotta separate them a little. But, sometimes, when they have rough days, they actually support each other a lot so, which makes it easier," said coach Tatiana Kovaleva.
Steven knows Jeffrey is the one to beat.
"My biggest concern against with competing against my brother is his, his natural born talent. He lands so perfectly into the trampoline that if everything goes his way and perfect, he could be the best in the world," said Steven.
Yet 19-year-old Jeffrey still looks up to 21-year-old Steven.
"He has a very good work ethic. He comes into the gym, he trains his hardest and always puts his heart into it," said Jeffrey.
Steven has only lost to Jeffrey once, but it was big. He lost his national title to his baby brother last year.
The last Olympic trials competition is scheduled for June 25. The winner will represent Team USA in London.
