Question: Has there ever been twins who won Olympic medals competing together?

Answer: The answer is YES!

Over the years, there have been many sets of twins who have competed together in the Olympics, including one set of brothers who each competed for a different country.

In the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, twins Phil and Steven Mahre took gold and silver respectively in the Men’s Downhill Slalom Skiing event.
