Leila Luik chases Olympic qualifying standard, triplets from Estland could make it for Rio

There could well be an Olympic novelty in the women’s marathon in Rio this summer: Estand’s triplets Leila, Liina and Lily Luik aim to start together in Brazil. Two of them will run Sunday’s Haspa Marathon Hamburg. While Lily Luik will miss the race due to an injury she has already achieved the Olympic qualifying standard. 30 year-old Liina has run sub 2:45 as well, but Leila still has to achieve this on Sunday. However with a personal best of 2:37:11 she is the fastest of the three. Watch the video interview with Leila and Liina Luik here.
