ACHIEVING IMPOSSIBLE

Running only began playing a role in the Luik sisters’ lives when they were 24 years old; Liina first adopted the sport before encouraging her sisters to join her. It was a natural affinity for the sisters because, as Liina puts it, "Movement to us means freedom." A healthy, competitive drive amongst siblings set their collective impossible goal to run against—and alongside—one another at the Olympic Games.

"Even if you are not so young anymore, you can also go to the Olympic Games like we did," said Liina Luik.

After months of relentless training, the Luik sisters qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and became the first and only triplets to ever participate. After their marathon—exhausted yet brimming with excitement—Lily, Liina and Leila linked arms, proud that together they had accomplished their collective dream of running together as Olympians.

Quote We thought that it was impossible because we started to so late—at 24 years old—but it doesn't matter how old you are. Even if you are not so young anymore, you can also go to the Olympic Games like we did. Unquote
