Illinois twin sisters Chloe and Claire Gruenke were competing at a regional track-and-field meet this weekend, where they both participated in the 800-meter race.
During the run about 400 meters, 13-year-old Chloe felt something “pull and pop” in her thigh, eventually crumpling to the ground.
Claire, who was behind, came up and hoisted her sister on her back and powered the remaining 400 meters to finish the race.
“The energy from the crowd made me stronger,” Claire told KTVI later.
