Which Gold Medalist Was PREGNANT At the 2012 London Olympics?

 

This is kind of awesome and amazing news, if you ask me. You really have to admire a woman who was able to pull of winning her third consecutive Olympic gold medal.

Kerri Walsh Jennings – 5 weeks pregnant in London!

That’s right. Kerri Walsh-Jennings, told Matt Lauer on The TodayShow that she didn’t feel quite herself back in London.

“When I was throwing my body around fearlessly, and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant,” Walsh Jennings said.

The Olympian first started noticing that her “body started to feel different” while she was overseas.

“I’m a pretty happy girl and I was unreasonably moody,” she said. “I thought it could have been the stress of the games and travel kind of throws your schedule off. But I knew. At some point, you’re late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely felt something in London.”

Walsh Jennings, who successfully defended her gold medal title with teammate and fellow Californian Misty-May Treanor, said that the pregnancy did not affect her game. The duo became the first women’s beach volleyball pair to win three consecutive gold medals.

“I gave everything I had,” Walsh Jennings said on “Today.”

If we as American women didn’t already admire Kerri for her incredible accomplishments, now we can feel awe for her as well.  Wow.  Just wow!
