British identical twins play against each other at the Special Olympics

Alistair and Duncan Feltham
Table tennis playing twins Alistair and Duncan (both 46) share that thought. Thirty years ago they started playing table tennis at home and now they have to compete against each other in the finals at the European Games in Antwerp. It is not the first time that the brothers have played against other. “Usually one of them wins the first set, the other one wins the next set and so on. They alternately winning sets. The decisive set is always a lottery”, tells their mother, Sheena Feltham. And the game Alistair and Duncan played Wednesday proved her right. The first set was won by Duncan, the second set by Alistair, the third by Duncan and the fourth... Well, you can fill in the blanks. In the final and decisive set, Alistair won with 12-10. Once again a close game. “But there is absolutely no jealousy between the brothers,” knows mother Sheena. “They support each other through thick and thin. They are also really happy when the other one wins. That's brotherly love."
