Birthday question

Postby larwood » Sat Nov 22, 2003 9:52 am

Of course, we all know what happen in Dallas on this day in 1963. However, the news that day wasn't all bad as these world class twins were born 40 years ago today. Who are they?

To bf, these twins are alive, so your silly answer doesn't count, and it is not the G.I. Joe twins either. As for Plumer, PattiSue? If she has a twin that is news to me. But even if she does the answer is no. So keep trying.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know that Irina Privalova (35), Katrin Krabbe (34), Francis Obikwelu (25) and Yaroslav Rybakov (23) all share their birthday today!

I'll guess the Toobys. Am I right?

I do not think the Plumers are twins, though they are definitely sisters. As for the Toobys, Angela and Susan from Woolhope, Hereford in England that answer is...wrong. However, they do share a birthday with the golf commentator Ian Baker Finch: October 24, 1960. Try again.

speaking of brothers ( I think they were twins,but not positive)

Who were the brothers "Don and Dave" ?

Re: The Styrons, Dave was a sprinter 9.3 or 9.4 and Don was the hurdler held w-rec in the 220H and was a 49 something 440H. I can't remember if they were twins but I think Jerry Tarr beat Don's record.

Hey, guys you are losing focus here. It is not that hard a question. For a hint they are distance runners.

Well then, there were a couple of Portuguese distance runners that were pretty good sometime
in the 80's both named Castro one was probably Domingo Castro. I don't think that I ever knew they were twins. Good question though.
Did you think about them because of the date Nov 22 and the whole conspiracy scene?

You got it. Dionisio and Domingos Castro were both born on Nov. 22, 1963.

Yes, the answer is the Castro Twins. Domingos was the silver medalist at the 1987 WC 5000 and a heart-breaking 4th (pipped at the line) in the Seoul 5000. Twin brother Dionisio was WR holder for 20K on the track and once missed the WR for the hour run by one meter. I met them once in Boulder a few years ago. Pleasant fellows, however they speak very little English. (Or at least to me they did.)

As for their relation to F.C. and the conspiracy theories, I will leave that to Oliver Stone.

Malmo, what is your point? PattiSue was born in
1962 and Polly in 1964.

World record holding high jumpers Valery Brumel and Ni-Chi Chin (unratified record) were born on the same day, in the same general quadrant of the world, but I don't think they were twins...

Also Emil Zatopek and his wife were born on the exact same day. We only hope they weren't twins.
