American runner Alysia Montano stole the headlines on Thursday at the USA Track and Field Championships despite not winning the race.
The 31-year-old athlete remarkably ran the two laps while five months pregnant with her second child, much to the delight of the crowd.
This isn’t the first time she has done the extraordinary and competed while carrying a child.
Back in 2014, Montano ran in exactly the same race at the same championships while she was 34 weeks pregnant (eight months), finishing nearly 11 seconds slower
‘Everyone is like, “Oh, you’re going to be faster than you were last time, because you’re less pregnant,”‘ said Montano on Thursday after the race, whose personal-best time is 1:57.34 set in 2010. ‘I’m like, “I’m still pregnant.”‘
She’s amazing Isn’t she?
