Mt. Pleasant twins turn 11 on 11/11/11

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Twin girls from Mt. Pleasant are celebrating their 11th birthday Friday on 11/11/11.

The Olson twins, not those Olson twins, will celebrate their numerical anomaly with a party Friday night in Awendaw.

Brianna and Megan Olson were born on Nov. 11, 2000.

The Olson twins aren't they only ones celebrating on such a rare occurrence. In Cincinnati, Carmen Leisgang also turns 11.

"Two years ago, we were leaving a softball game and she said, 'Dad, I can't wait until I'm 11.' And I asked 'Why's that?' She said, 'Because I'll be 11 on 11/11/11,'" said Kurt Leisgang.

The active fifth grader likes playing soccer, basketball, volleyball and dancing.
