As the London Olympics 2012 drench us in stories of great inspiration and heart-rending stories of triumph this one is right up there with a gold medal effort. And maybe more.

These sisters share a body and are the rarest form of conjoined twins. In fact, they were never expected to survive beyond a few days.


Abigail and Brittany Hensel have not only survived, they have gone on to live normal lives as is possible and went from darling children, to plucky teenagers and now, beautiful young women.

Astonishing development: The 22-year-olds, who share one body, graduated from Bethel University in Minnesota, a story that will form part of the show
They have two spines (which join at the pelvis), two hearts, two esophagi, two stomachs, three kidneys, two gall bladders, four lungs (two of which are joined), one liver, one ribcage, a shared circulatory system and partially shared nervous systems.

From the waist down, all organs, including the intestine, bladder and reproductive organs are shared.

The 22-year-olds, who share one body fused at the torso, will soon be starring in their own reality TV show.
