While sitting in the stands waiting to see some good sprinting competition, be sure to pay attention for you may only be able to catch a glimpse of the Coleman brothers as they glide right by.

Antoine and La Ronn Coleman are brothers on the men’s track and field team. Both are freshmen on team, and to raise it up a notch on the interest scale: they are identical twins.

“Because we’re twins we played a lot of tricks on people,” La Ronn says.

But when it comes to competition, there are no tricks for these brothers. The brothers compete in the 100 and 400-meter races, and the 4-by-100 meter team relay. They compete in the same events together. The brothers push each other to exhaustion at practice and during competition to improve each other.

At the San Mateo Invitational meet on March 12, Antoine received first place in his heat with a time of 12.56 seconds in the 100-meter dash, but received 22 place overall. At the same meet and event La Ronn earned 17 place with 12.34 seconds.

The brothers have been competing together ever since they were young. They later went to separate high schools, but it did not affect how they competed together. Because of this bond, they say they have always had to work each other hard and gain the necessary skill to achieve perfection in running.

“When it came to sports we competed and made each other work harder and get better at what we do,” La Ronn says.

The Coleman brothers have the perfect buddy system. Not only do they have a person in common to compete with, but a good person to compete against. Every sibling knows about the constant competition between one another.

The Coleman brothers, however, take it to the max by competing in track together.

According to head men’s track and field coach Rob Dewar, the brothers compete with each other in a very good way. He feels that there are no rivalries between the brothers.

However, not only does he enjoy the good relationship between the brothers, but also their hard work ethic.

“They do what they say and they say what they do,” Dewar says.

Growing up together as twins was a very good experience for them, the brothers say. Not only did they get the chance to play tricks on teachers in middle school but also they got the chance to have someone who they could relate to since day one.

“It’s someone else like you,” Antoine says.

The brothers say they are both excited for the upcoming season and, the big tournaments.

During the California Relays in Cerritos, Calif., March 19-20, LaRonn placed second in his heat and 17 overall out of 42 places in the 100-meter dash. Antoine placed third in his heat and placed 33 overall in the same category.

The brothers have plenty of season left. So it’s plenty of time to improve.

“We expect to continue improving and to hopefully become the best we can be,” Antoine says. “We like what we do and plan to enjoy it as long as we can.”
