          Steve, I think the question is referring to female sisters.

            I thought of the Press brothers and I edited the Q.

              Angela and Susan Tooby

              Anyone remember them? Twins and ran for Wales/GB. Both running decent times for long distances in the 15 min (5000m) and 31 minute (10,000) range.

                I remember seeing one of them once and wondering whether it was Tooby or not Tooby.

                      OK stat guys, help me out, but Julie and Mary Shea. Both in top 10 all time HS for 3000 (Mary 9:13.56=3, Julie 9:15.4=6), Mary is 5th in 2M (10:03.5), 2nd in 5k (16:13.7) and 1 in 10k (32:52.5). In 1980, the two swept the Oly Trials 5k exhibition, Julie in 15:44.12, Mary in 16:07.50. In 1981, Julie finished 4th in the Boston Marathon, 2:30:54 behind Roe (2:26:46 course record), Catalano and Benoit. In 1983, Mary finished second in 2:33:23 behind Benoit's then course record of 2:22:43. Besides being named to numerous US XC and "Best Of" teams (best ACC comes to mind off hand), I think folks would be hard pressed to find a faster pair of sisters. I am sure the stat guys could research their all time placings! And remember... their times are 20-25 years old!

                          Always felt sorry for Angela in Seoul - she couldn't train before her heat and was forced to do pool striding. I think she had the potential to run in the 31:20 range, a great time back then.

                          Are the Dibabas sisters or cousins?

                            Grazyna Rabsztyn, the WR holder at 100 hurdles (12.36) and her sister Elzbieta, world-ranked 3 times, with a PB of 12.80 (who later became Mrs. Harald Schmid)

                              'Angela and Susan Tooby Anyone remember them? Twins and ran for Wales/GB.'

                              Born and raised in England, and ran for Wales. Only in the UK could that happen.

                              'Susan Tooby
                              5000m 15:32.19 1985 maybe not PR
                              10,000m 32:20.95 1988 maybe not PR'

                              Those are Susan's PRs.
