Celebrating Motherhood in the Olympics

Bradley Mattes   |   August 05, 2021

History is being made at the Summer Olympic games in Tokyo.  More female athletes who have given birth are competing than ever before.  Sally Kipyego is one of them.  She’s a marathon runner who placed second in the US Olympic trials after having her daughter Emma.  Sally made a commitment to motherhood not knowing how it would impact her running career.  She said, “I quickly realized that being a mom enhanced the qualities I already possessed.  Being a mother has made me a better athlete and a better person.”  Traditionally, athletes competing on such a high level, face immense pressure to abort their babies out of a misplaced notion that motherhood and the Olympics are not compatible.  Well, Sally and a growing number of female athletes are proving the naysayers wrong.  We can celebrate motherhood in the Olympics.
