  • Identical Twins at NCAAs?

    Have identical twins ever qualified for NCAAs in the same event before? Arkansas freshmen Lexi and Tori Weeks look likely to both qualify for indoor NCAAs in the pole vault!

    I remember the Craig twins (Canadians) running 1500 at Texas.

      Bob and Ross Hume (Michigan) tied for the 1945 NCAA mile championship.

        distantly related query... were Don and Dave regular bros or were they twins ? I think they were just regular bros, maybe frat twins but not ID twins. ( and of course everyone here knows who " Don and Dave" were. )

          I imagine the Hauser brothers ran in the same event while at Stanford. Didn't they go 1-2 in the 10,000 one year?

            I believe they were identical.

              Rosa brothers at Stanford should have, but I'm not entirely sure that they did. Lots of injuries.

                Just looked up old results, and the Hausers went 1-2 at 10000 in 1998.

                  The T&FN profile of the Styrons in '61 doesnt mention the nature of their twinhood, which would lead me to guess they're not identical, since that's the kind of thing that usually seems to come up.

                  The picture of them makes them look pretty much indistinguishable

                    Borlee twins in 2009, 1st and 4th in the 400m final (outdoors).

                      There's a reference there to "the identical Styron twins".

                          Ha, the Tooby twins were born over an hour apart! And their parents didn't even know they had twins until they were born..."looks like we have another here" the doctor said.

                              Not D1 and not in the same event but I'd bet the Assumma twins qualified for the D2 championship in the early 1980's when they were both still running at UC Riverside.
