While an accomplished runner since adolescence, Mo Farah made history in 2010 when he won both the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races at the European Track and Field Championships. Just one week after this double win, Farah became the first British man to run below 13 minutes for the 5,000 meter race. His finish of 12:57.94 established a national record, which he then beat one year later and set a record of 12:53.11. Farah has won the gold medal in both the 10,000 meter and 5,000 meter races at two Olympic games, London 2012 and Rio 2016, as well as at the European T&F Championships, making him the first person in history to win both races on three different occasions.

Mo’s twin, Hassan, is not as well known, having been separated from his brother for 12 years when they were just eight years old. Mo went with his father to England, while Hassan stayed with their mother in Somalia.

English twins Harry and Luke Treadaway got their big break when they were just 21 years old in the film “Brothers of the Head.” The twins played wannabe rock stars and conjoined twins Barry and Tom Howe. Since their debut film in 2005, the Treadaway twins have taken different paths in their acting careers. For nearly a decade, Harry acquired more recognizable roles in movies such as Anton Corbijn’s “Control” in 2007 and Andrea Arnold’s “Fish Tank” in 2009. As Harry landed roles in cinema, Luke rerouted his acting talents into the world of theater. By 2013, Luke stepped into the spotlight with his performance in “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.”

Harry has appeared in the TV series “The Crown” and “Star Trek: Picard,” and Luke can be seen in the television series “Traitors” and “Fortitude.”

By 2013, Jason was arrested after a bar fight at Martini Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona and charged with disorderly conduct.

Jason appeared in the films “Weekend Warriors” and “Horse Camp: A Love Tail” this year. Jeremy has various projects in production.
