Now Alysia Montano, seven times the U.S. 800m champion, has competed in the preliminary round of an important contest while five months pregnant.

United States athlete Alysia Montano participated in the 2017 USA Nationals 800m race pregnant and it is quite the feat...and it has got the internet buzzing!

Back in 2014, she competed in the 800 meters while eight months along because she wanted to show women that they should still be active while pregnant.

Montano underlined this in a video she posted to her Twitter account before the race, encouraging her followers to "be your journey".

Montano, who fittingly channeled Wonder Woman in both spirit and uniform during Thursday's race, has already experienced postpartum success, as well. She captured the silver as part of Team USA's women's 4×800-meter relay and gold in the women's 4×400-meter event. - Well, yeah, except she's five months pregnant! "Who wants to pick up a book and read the same chapter over and over again?"
