Following the race on Sacramento, California Montano chased her two-year-old daughter around the track.

"I don't define myself as a runner", Montano added. The six-time national champion ran in the USATF Outdoor Championships three years ago, while eight months pregnant with her first child. And I see that playing true in running, ' Alysia Montano stated.

Call her super-woman or wonder woman if you like, but this is not the first time she has pulled this incredible fit.

Despite running over two minutes in her two most famous races, Montana has in fact run a personal best time of 1min 57.34secs, back in 2010. It wasn't good enough to earn a spot in the semifinals, but that wasn't the goal.

She was snapped finishing the race at Hornet Stadium, beaming from ear to ear, while wearing a Wonder Woman top - somewhat apt, you'll agree.

According to recent reports, the Europa League winners are thought to be interested in signing the Brazilian midfielder in a £30m deal from Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco.

"This isn't to pressure women to run during pregnancy".

Montano's decision to run while pregnant was one she made with her doctor's blessing, not that that necessarily stopped some people from sharing their unsolicited opinions. "That's not the point at all", she said. This time beat her previous time while pregnant by 10 seconds.

Montano underlined this in a video she posted to her Twitter account before the race, encouraging her followers to "be your journey".

I'm like, "I'm still pregnant", she said.
