Speaking of twins, you might not know that Mo Farrah is a twin, although his brother is not a runner. Swedish twin sisters Susanna and Jenny Kallur dominated the European stage in the early 2000s in hurdles. And French twins Isabelle Mouthon-Michelly and Beatrice Mouthon both competed in the first Olympics Triathlon in 2000, placing seventh and thirty-fifth, respectively, and were born under the sign of Gemini on June 14th!
Another elite, not a twin but a Gemini, is Tara Welling. Her rise to qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Trials in the 10,000m and her win at the National Half Marathon Championships last month illustrates several Gemini traits, including disliking routine and repetition, choosing to change directions, restlessness and searching out new mentors. Just over a year ago she believed she was done with competitive running and left her coaches at the Nike Oregon Project. After three months off she got bored just running with her dog and got back into competition by joining a new program, High Performance West. The changes paid off, and the rest is history and what looks to be a bright future.
