There are 4 comments on Seeing Double: BU Twins to Row in Head of the Charles

  1. One often wonders if twins do indeed function as a kind of ‘superorganism’ from having grown up together always at the same life-stage together (as well as being similar due to same genetics). As the mother of fraternal twin boys, I see them behaving like a two-headed creature often; they are usually ‘wing-to-wing’ as they navigate their world, and they frequently use ‘we’ to refer to themselves as collective agents. But are these just stories that parents tell themselves?

    I found it powerful when the coach basically confirmed this with the quote: “It’s way better to have them together than apart,” says women’s rowing head coach Stacey Rippetoe. “Not that apart they’re bad. It’s just that Kelli and Kerri work really well together. It’s almost like there’s more than two people when they’re together, because there’s this synergy that works.”

  2. Nice article! However, at the end of the article when listing the races and times for the BU women’s and men’s teams, the races for the BU Lightweights were completely missed!!! They are on Sunday with the 4s racing at 3:31 and the 8s racing at 3:51.

      1. Thank you so very much! This is a ‘new’ team (3 years old)–yet in its short life, the team has been very successful. The first team members–most of whom had never rowed before joining the BU openweight team as novices their freshman year–are graduating this year.
