Well, ladies, now you have something else to worry about besides “getting too big” from weight lifting: surprise birth. This is the best part for me:

The head trainer at the gym, Horacio Reis, said the birth had been “a surprise”. “A week ago I acted as a judge in a competition in Chile and this girl was competing. All went well and she won the competition.”

Wins a weightlifting competition a week before giving birth. Much respect.
