Sister carries twin on her back to finish race

There was a dramatic ending to a race over the weekend at an Illinois track meet as twin sister finished one event together. 13-year-old twins Chloe and Claire Gruenke spent the weekend competing at the Southern Illinois State Track Meet. The twins were both running the 800 when all of a sudden Chloe suffered a leg injury. "Claire came up behind me and put me on her back and helped me finish," Chloe said. The twins finished the race together with Claire carrying her sister for 370 of the 400 meters remaining in the race. They may have come in last but the twins won the hearts of those in attendance at the meet.
