Twin Pole-Vaulters Have Matching (And Amazing) Athletic Ability

Twin Pole-Vaulters Have Matching (And Amazing) Athletic Ability

Tori and Lexi Weeks are identical twins in Arkansas, and their looks aren’t the only things that match up. Both girls also excel with their athletic ability.

According to The New York Times, the Cabot High School students hold multiple school records and marks for track and field events.

At a competition in early February, the sisters took the top two spots in the pole vault and long jump. They also contributed to breaking their school’s indoor record in the 4x400-meter relay.

As for pole vaulting, the athletes kept the twin trend going at an indoor competition last month with matching (and impressive) 14-feet-1/2-inch jumps. Since then, Lexi cleared a bar raised 14 feet 3 1/4 inches, which means she now holds the national high school indoor record for girls. The previous record holder jumped 14 feet 2 3/4 inches.

The Weeks twins shine in more than just athletics. The New York Times reports that they have never gotten a grade below an A and plan on being named co-salutatorians. Both will attend the University of Arkansas in the fall.

Double the trouble? More like double the talent.
