U.S. Olympic 800m runner Alysia Montaño raced five months pregnant in 100-degree heat at the USATF Outdoor Championships (Summer Champions Series) in Sacramento, Calif.
The middle-distance runner ran at the USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Sacramento, wearing teeny tiny shorts and a crop top emblazoned with an image of Wonder Woman, her baby belly out for all the world to see.
Montaño, who raced eight months pregnant at the 2014 USATF Outdoors also in Sacramento, finished last in her 800m first-round heat in 2:21.40. She was 10 seconds faster than her time three years ago.
“People were like, oh, you’re going to run faster than you did last time because you’re less pregnant,” Montaño told media in Sacramento, standing next to 2-year-old daughter Linnea. “I was like, I’m still pregnant.”
Athletes are looking for top-three finishes to qualify for the world championships in London in August. Finals are later this weekend.
In a Wonder Woman top, Montaño gritted her teeth on the final straightaway and raised her arms crossing the finish line.
