MileSplit Arizona videographer Austin Pestka recently caught up with the senior duo of twin brothers Gibson and Francis Kibia, the top distance runners at Chandler.

Gibson has a personal best of 15:12 in the 5k and was the Division I individual state champion in cross country this past fall. On the track, he has run 1:56.73 in the 800m, 4:19.24 in the 1600m and 9:24.76 in the 3200m.

Francis has run 15:28.40 in the 5k and finished in third place at the state cross country meet. He owns PRs of 2:00.62 / 4:26.42 / 9:37.36.

After doing a short offseason workout on the track, the two brothers sat down with Pestka for a video interview. The pair share how brotherhood has impacted their athletic careers, discuss their transition to the sport after being relatively new to it and break down their 2022 cross country campaigns while looking ahead to outdoor track season, their last with the Wolves.
