This real-life Wonder Woman ran 800 metres while 5 months pregnant
At 43 degrees, this woman decided to run an 800-metre race.
Olympic runner, Alysia Montaño, decided to take inspiration from feminist icon of the moment, Wonder Woman, and ran in the USATF Outdoor Championships in severe heat and while five month’s pregnant.
Yes, donning a Wonder Woman top, Alysia’s baby bump was on full display as she kicked ass in Sacramento last week.
And this isn’t the first time she’s set herself the challenge while pregnant, three years ago, the athlete took part in the championship again, however, she was much further along.
“I was eight months pregnant in 2014 and it was such an amazing experience,” she told Team USA.
“There is something about coming out to any venue not really expecting to win but going along with the journey and seeing what comes out of it.”
Alysia finished last in the first-round heat this time, however, she did take one victory with her, and that was beating her time in 2014 by nearly 11 seconds.
The 31-year-old’s three-year-old daughter was cheering her mum on and was waiting for her at the finish line wearing a t-shirt that read “Strong like mom.”
“This is what it looks like to be a professional athlete as a woman and still continue with your career,” she told FloTrack.
“This is my normal.”
