8-months pregnant US Olympian runs 800m race


Five-time U.S. national champion, Alysia Montano left many stunned after running an 800m race while 34 weeks pregnant( 8 1/2 months pregnant)..Though she finished last in the race yesterday at the Hornet Stadium in Sacramento, California, she said she enjoyed it and felt ‘really good’.

The 28-year-old runner, who received a standing ovation after completing the race in 2 minutes, 32.13 seconds, said her doctor gave her the go-ahead and contrary to beliefs,it is not harmful to the baby

     ‘I’ve been running throughout my pregnancy and I felt really, really good during the whole process.’That took away any fear of what the outside world might think about a woman running during her pregnancy.What I found out mostly was that exercising during pregnancy is actually much better for the mom and the baby…I did all the things I normally do…I just happened to be pregnant. This is my normal this year
