Brent and Brad Hauser

Twenty-two-year-old twins Brent and Brad Hauser have the kind of track record that makes their competitors weak in the knees. Now seniors at Stanford University, the former Kingwood residents have both set school records in the 10,000-meter, 5,000-meter (indoor and outdoor), and 3,000-meter events. At last year’s NCAA championships, Brad won the gold in the 10,000-meter and the indoor 5,000-meter runs; Brent followed right behind, winning the silver in the 10,000. At the NCAA indoor championships this March, Brad came in first and Brent took second in the 5,000, and in May Brad qualified for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in 2000. This month the pair will be leading Stanford’s track team at the NCAA outdoor championships and competing individually at the U.S. Nationals. Though the brothers have been running against each other since Houston’s Jingle Bell Fun Run in the seventh grade, sibling rivalry remains noticeably absent. Each says the other has been the key to his run of success. “You always have a training partner,” Brad explains, “and there’s always somebody pushing you.”
