Helen and Carol Galashan - National Lottery Sat 19-Jun-10

Four years ago the twins were both competing in the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne as individual gymnasts [1], [2], [3]. Shortly after that they gave up gymnastics and switched to synchronised diving [4], [5]. This time they are hoping to make it all the way to the London Olympics in 2012.

We learned belatedly that they had appeared on the Lotto prize draw on prime time TV last Saturday. However thanks to the BBC iPlayer and the wonders of the interweb we were able to catch it later and here it is :-)

Very, very exciting! Will have to keep up with them (on the tv, that is).

I saw them and recognised the names. Very impressed, good luck to them.
