Malaysian rifle shooter Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi is competing in the Olympics this summer...at eight months pregnant!
Nur found out she was pregnant two days before she qualified for the Games in January. She normally competes in both the 10 Metre Air Rifle and 50 Metre Rifle Three Position events, but is limited to just the 10 Metre in London because of her growing belly.
In the 50 Metre Rifle Three Position, competitors lie on their tummies to shoot, in a position known as 'prone'. She told Australia's Herald Sun: "Yeah, I cannot do a prone position with this big stomach!"
However she told The Times she was hoping her tummy might be an advantage in her field, saying: "One advantage that I've seen is that my stability increased - maybe because my gravity increased, my weight increased."

Good luck Nur Suryani!
