Illinois twins Chloe and Claire Gruenke spent the weekend competing at a regional track meet. Both were running in the 800 meter race when suddenly 13-year-old Chloe felt something “pull and pop” in her thigh. She eventually crumpled to the ground.
Claire, who was behind, came up and hoisted her sister on her back and powered the remaining almost 400 meters to finish the race.
“The energy from the crowd made me stronger,” she told KTVI later.
