At 34 weeks pregnant, most women are likely to be putting up their feet and enjoying their last few weeks of freedom.

But this isn't the case for Olympian athlete Alysia Montano, who recently competed in an 800m race!

Alysia, who is a professional runner and five-times US national champ, ran the distance in an astonishing 2mins 32secs at Hornet Stadium in California.

The 28-year-old sportswoman is due to give birth in seven weeks and checked with doctors before deciding to participate in the race.

Quoted in the Daily Mail, Alysia said: "I've been running throughout my pregnancy and I felt really, really good during the whole process."

She added: " What I found out mostly was that exercising during pregnancy is acutally much better for the mum and the baby…I did all the things I normally do…I just happened to be pregnant."

We don't think we could even run this fast when we're not pregnant, so we're pretty impressed with Alysia's achievement!
