The 2-time American Record holder who is 5-months pregnant ran the 800m race with her bulging baby bump.

"Armenpress" reports, citing The Daily Mail, Alysia Montano stole the headlines at the championship despite not winning the race. This time around, in the searing heat, she ran 11 seconds faster than her 2014 time. "When I found out (star Gal Gadot) filmed half the movie five months pregnant, I said, 'I for sure am signing up for United States of America nationals'".

This isn't the first time Montaño arrived at the US championships to run pregnant.

Alysia first competed pregnant in 2014, showing women that pregnancy does not have to limit your ability to exercise. I represent women. I represent black women. The 31-year-old sportswoman competed in the USATF Outdoor Championships recently.

"I thought it (the film) was fantastic", Montano said.

"The flower to me means strength with femininity", she is quoted saying in a message on her website. In fact, she came in last in her heat, but no matter. Montaño, who is five months preggo, paid homage to the Amazonian warrior and real-life actress Gal Gadot, who previously revealed she filmed half of the Wonder Woman movie while pregnant, too. She showed the world what a pregnant woman is capable of and we couldn't get enough.
