In the Article “ The World Oldest twins” I learned that On September 1, 2021, sisters Umeno Sumiyama and Koume Kodama celebrated a very important milestone. At 107 years and three hundred days old, the two became the oldest living identical twins in the world. The sisters didn’t really celebrate their birthday since they are from japan and growing up they were always bullied for being born together. What I find sad is that the twin sisters were separated from each other and only got to see each other for big family events like weddings or funerals. They reconnected in their 70’s but are currently living in separate nursing homes due to their old age. Both were really excited to receive the Guiness World Record certificates. Something that is really surprising is that twenty-nine percent of the Japanese population is over 65, and about 86,500 Japanese people are 100 years old or older.
I’ve always thought that having a twin is cool but now it blows my mind that out in the world there are twins who are 107 years old. They must have been through a lot in their life so it was interesting to find out about them.
Would you like to have a twin ?
