What would you do for your sister?

One woman gave up her Olympic spot so her twin sister could have it.

According to Reuters, Lanny Barnes, 31, is now going to the Sochi Olympics in Russia, thanks to her sister, Tracy.

Lanny reportedly missed out on a place on the team after she got sick and couldn’t compete in the finals.

That’s when, Reuters said, Tracy, who had secured a spot in the biathlon, pulled out so her sister could go instead.

The sisters from Colorado competed together in the 2006 Winter Olympics.
