Identical Triplets Aim To Make History Running At The Olympics
No need to adjust your screen–those really are identical triplets you’re seeing.
Three sisters with a big goal!
Leila, Liina, and Lily Luik hope to make Olympic history when they run the women’s marathon this summer in Brazil.
The Guardian newspaper reports that plenty of twins have competed in the Olympics, but triplets? Identical ones, at that?
This Rio Trio from Estonia will be a first.
How do they make this work?
What are they like in action?
Take a look:
The Telegraph newspaper reports the sisters came to running late.
They started when they were 24.
They’re now 30-years-old.
They are realistic about their chances at the Olympics.
They don’t expect to medal against the world class competition.
They’d like to cross the finish line together and do it smiling.
