Twins and German athletes Anna and Lisa Hahner are being criticised for crossing the finishing line during Sunday’s women’s marathon holding hands.
It's about money! They are going towards a claim in sports management. Advertising contracts?
If the Hahners want to cross the finish line together, beaming and holding hands, then they can do that all they like - in a local fun run in St Polten or the Miss Plaits run in Solingen.
[it was] disrespectful and a slap in the face to all the other athletes in the German team.
To the Hahner twins: Here are two young sportswomen making something of their talent. Business efficient . Clever. Nothing else
Writing on their Facebook page, the twins say that while they are not satisfied with the result, crossing the finishing line at the Olympics is still one of their "biggest sporting moments."
