Pregnant Olympic Shooter to Compete in London

At the summer Olympic Games in London this year, rifle shooter Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi, is hoping not to get kicked off the firing line – by her unborn child.   The Malaysian mom will be eight months pregnant when she aims for gold in the 10 meter air rifle competition but said she feels strong and will be talking to her child during the competition, asking for one hour and 15 minutes of calm, with no kicking.

Taibi will be limited to the standing, 10 meter competition, as her third-trimester belly will prevent her from shooting from the prone (lying) position, but to date she feels there is no reason not to compete.
