Australian Identical Twins Run NYC Marathon For a Cause

By Shiwen Rong

They say twins share a special bond, and for Sarah and Jess Hosking, that’s exactly right.

These sports-loving identical twins from Australia not only share a home, but a passion for sports and dreams. Sarah and Jess have already achieved their dreams together—playing professional football in the Australian Football League Women’s for four years. Now, they’re taking up a new challenge together.

The sisters will run together in the New York City Marathon this Sunday, their first go at competitive running.
