Double success as other twin wins Golden Bayonet too
Yeo Jin Rui and his identical twin, Jin Run, have marched to the same beat since birth. They went to the same school, joined the same co-curricular activity and yesterday completed another double, this time in the army.
When newly minted Third Sergeant Jin Rui graduated from the Specialist Cadet School (SCS) with a Golden Bayonet, he matched his brother's effort six months earlier. The Golden Bayonet is awarded to the top cadets from each branch of the army.
The older twin by two minutes, 3SG Jin Rui, 21, said of his brother's achievement: "I wanted to be like him. That gave me extra motivation."
Both brothers also graduated from the SCS as signals specialists.
